Military Times evaluates many factors in their comprehensive school-by-school assessment. Over 600 schools nationwide take part in their comprehensive review. For the 2017-18 school year, the rankings were more competitive than ever this year than other years. George Altman, the editor of Military Times stated “Only the best made the cut.” 

As Natalie Dross from Military Times explains, “To make this cut, colleges are based on data from departments of Federal Education, Defense and Veterans Affairs, along with three education department sources:  IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard Data and the Cohort Default Rate Database. Additionally, five categories also determine rankings:  College and University Culture; Academic Quality and Outcomes; Policies; Student Support; Cost and Financial Aid.”
