WCU Named a Top School for Veterans

West Chester University is among the top 100 best schools for veterans according to a new ranking entity, The College Consensus.

The College Consensus aggregates rankings from US News, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and others and averages those with student reviews from websites including Cappex and Niche. Among the requirements colleges must meet are participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program; having a student veterans organization; and having a dedicated support contact on staff for veterans, service members, and families.

WCU already ranks at #36 on the US News 2018 Best Colleges for Veterans list and has received the Military Friendly School designation from GI Jobs and Top Colleges and Universities designation from Military Advanced Education & Transition from 2014 through the present.
