NEWS RELEASE FROM PITTSBURG STATE UNIVERSITY

PSU earns spot on Best Colleges for Veterans list

U.S. News and World Report recently released its inaugural rankings of the “Best Colleges for Veterans,” pegging Pittsburg State University at No. 22 in the 12-state Midwest Region. It was the highest ranking of any regional university in Kansas or the MIAA.

“We are pleased to be recognized for our work to make Pittsburg State University a great place for veterans to complete their education,” said Sherry Roberts, veterans services coordinator at PSU. “The veterans who attend Pittsburg State contribute to the strength and diversity of the PSU family. We honor them for their service and we’re proud they are here.”

In a release, U.S. News said they chose to create the new rankings in order to “provide data and information on schools that offer federal benefits, including tuition and housing assistance, to veterans and active service members. All of the Best Colleges for Veterans scored well in terms of graduation rate, faculty resources, reputation and other markers of academic quality in the 2014 edition of the U.S. News Best Colleges.”

To qualify for the rankings, the universities and colleges had to be certified for the GI Bill and participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program and Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium.

“While all prospective students seek a good education from a reputable institution, our military veterans can take advantage of expanded educational benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill,” said Brian Kelly, editor and chief content officer for U.S. News. “We developed these rankings to help them find a top-quality institution that also offers federal benefits that ease the burden of applying, paying for and completing a college degree.”
