ASU one of the nation's "Best for Vets" | Community Spirit
When it comes to providing a college education to America’s veterans, the Military Times says Arkansas State University is making the grade.
The newsweekly recently named ASU one of its “Best for Vets: Colleges” for 2013.
Coming in 31st place, A-State received extra attention for its “relaxed residency requirements and a helpful and accommodating veterans’ service office on campus.”
The Beck PRIDE Center, based in the College of Nursing and Health Professions, also was a major factor contributing to ASU’s excellent ranking. The center’s success in providing assistance to military veterans and their families has become a model for other universities looking to set up similar programs.
According to Board of Trustees policy, ASU offers in-state tuition rates for active duty U.S. military personnel and their dependents, as well as veterans who are honorably discharged, regardless of the individual’s duty station or residence.
This semester, there are 420 veterans attending A-State and receiving educational benefits through the Montgomery G.I. Bill.
