Everyone at Trident is committed to providing an exemplary student experience, especially for those men and women who serve and have served our country. - Travis Allen, President and CEO of Trident.
CYPRESS, Calif. (PRWEB) December 19, 2017
Military Times has announced its Military Times Best: Colleges 2018 rankings, and for the third consecutive year Trident University International (Trident) has made the list. Formerly known as Best for Vets, Trident placed at #19 on the Online and Nontraditional Schools list.
Now in its eighth year, the Military Times Best: Colleges 2018 rankings factor in the results of Military Times’ annual survey, the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement.
“Everyone at Trident is committed to providing an exemplary student experience, especially for those men and women who serve and have served our country,” stated Travis Allen, President and CEO of Trident. “Beyond our rigorous coursework and active learning approach, we believe that providing outstanding support for all of our students will allow them to accomplish their academic goals, especially those in the military.”
As with all Military Times rankings, Best Colleges 2018 is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that help make colleges and universities a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families. More than 600 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey.
"Of the hundreds of schools that applied, fewer than half received the Military Times Best: Colleges designation this year. Only the best made the cut," said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings.
Military Times’ annual Best 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.
