Four UT institutions among best public universities in nation for student vets

UT Arlington, UT Austin, UT El Paso and UT Tyler are among the leading four-year public universities in the nation for student veterans according to a recent national survey of 600 schools.

In the 2014 results conducted by The Military Times, universities were evaluated based on five categories: university culture, student support, academic quality, academic policies and financial aid. For the first time, U.S. Department of Education statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality were also used in the analysis. 

The four UT institutions were among the list's 86 top-ranked universities nationwide, which included only nine universities in Texas.

“The UT Tyler Veterans Resource Center is proud to support the university in achieving this ranking by The Military Times, and we are equally proud to be ranked so highly out of 600 institutions,” said Christopher Cox, UT Tyler Veterans Resource Center coordinator. “To be among this outstanding group of universities validates UT Tyler’s continued effort to help and encourage our student veterans.”
