UNCG makes ‘Best for Vets’ list

Military Times Edge magazine has named UNCG a “Best for Vets” school. UNCG is the only public university in North Carolina included in the annual ranking.

“As a state-supported public institution it is our role, and our duty, to serve the community and the state,” said Chancellor Linda P. Brady. “I can’t think of a better way to uphold that commitment than to support service members, veterans and their families in any way possible.”

UNCG ranked 61 among 68 ranked four-year schools.

Rankings are based on several factors, including staff assigned to support veterans, graduation rates for veterans, loan default rates for veterans and numbers of military-affiliated students enrolled.

About 483 military-affiliated students at UNCG receive GI Bill benefits; UNCG’s graduation rate for veterans is 72 percent.
