Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) November 09, 2015
ECPI University is pleased to announce it has been ranked number one once again by Military Times in its annual Best for Vets survey. This marks the 5th straight year ECPI University has been ranked in the top 3 and number 1 in two out the past three years.
Best for Vets: Colleges 2016 is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make a college or university a good fit for service members, military veterans, and their families. More than 600 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey, with ECPI University topping out the rankings among online and nontraditional programs.

“Being recognized as the number one school in this prestigious poll is the result of a strong team effort by all of our departments to recognize the needs of our unique students, both active duty military, Veterans, and their dependents,” says ECPI University Executive Director of Military Education Bob Larned. “We have been working with the military community for almost 50 years by assisting them in reaching their educational goals to enhance their careers. This recognition is extremely rewarding for all of us at ECPI University.”
Military Times’ annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey asks colleges and universities to meticulously document a tremendous array of services, special rules, accommodations, and financial incentives offered to students with military ties; and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus.
Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense Departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database. “We award the Best for Vets designation to the very best – the colleges that really are setting the example,” says Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times’ Best for Vets rankings and special editions.
The rankings are published in full in the issues of Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times, and Marine Corps Times on newsstands the week of Nov. 9; and online at MilitaryTimes.com, as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com.
