UM named one of the best colleges for veterans in 2018

The University of Montevallo is one of the best higher education institutions for U.S veterans, according to a recently released ranking by college review aggregator, College Consensus. 

Out of 192 total public and private colleges and universities included in the list, UM is ranked 37th, making it one of only three Alabama colleges included in the top 50. 

To be considered, each institution had to meet several specific criteria, including: offer credit for military training, be a Servicemember Opportunity Colleges member, have a recognized student veteran organization, be a Yellow Ribbon Program participant and employ a dedicated support contact for veterans, servicemembers and families. 

“College Consensus aims to help guide veterans and military personnel to the colleges and universities that will give them the strongest support and best opportunities for academic and professional transformation,” the site explains. 

Earlier this year, College Consensus ranked UM as the 5th best college in Alabama 

We love our student veterans and warriors at UM,” said Amanda Fox, UM’s registrar and interim coordinator of Veteran Affairs. “We may be smaller in size, but that allows us to offer personal attention to each of our students. Our class size, walkability of the campus, and the ability of our students to work directly with faculty in research and internships make us a great choice for our veterans!”
