GPC Named Best for Vets
For Immediate Release
Georgia Perimeter College was named among the top 10 two-year colleges that are “Best for Vets” by Military Times EDGE magazine.
The organization comprising Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times placed a new emphasis on academic rigor this year when conducting and scoring the fourth annual Best for Vets: Colleges survey, a 150-question analysis of a school’s complete offerings for veterans.
“As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Colleges is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans,” said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE.
“Best for Vets” provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, and availability of specific programs to help service members, she said. The evaluation process also factored in statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality, including student loan default rates, retention rates, graduation rates and student-faculty ratio.
“This survey was quite extensive,” said Mark Eister, GPC’s Military Outreach director. “It is important for us to be seen and known by outside organizations as a school that works hard to make the student veteran academic experience both smooth and successful.”
The rankings were published in full in the November issue of Military Times EDGE magazine, and online at MilitaryTimes.com, as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com.
