Penn State Named Best University for Veterans in America

On this Veteran’s Day, Penn State was named the No. 1 university in the country for veterans by U.S. News and World Report.

Out of U.S. News’ highest-rated schools by its “2014 Best Colleges” rankings, Penn State is the top-ranked university that also qualified for U.S. News’ “Best Colleges for Veterans” rankings. A qualifying university fulfills the following criteria:

In essence, Penn State provides veterans with the best-possible level of education while still offering federal benefits to ease their “burden of applying, paying for and completing their degrees.”

On top of financial aid, veterans attending Penn State will also enjoy priority class registration starting in the Spring 2014 semester. Veterans can register for this benefit by applying through the Office of Veterans Programs using this form.
