Quinnipiac named one of best universities for veterans

September 22, 2017

Veterans stand in a line in their military garb.

Quinnipiac University earns high marks from U.S. News & World Report's ranking of 2018 "Best Colleges for Veterans."

“Quinnipiac University serves our student veterans with a holistic approach to ensure they can concentrate on being students,” said Jason Burke, director of veteran and military affairs.

“By reducing administrative issues, waiving certain fees, and providing on-campus counseling and tutoring services, as well as having a veterans’ lounge, our cadre has the best chance to succeed. It’s an honor to be recognized as a top school that cares for its warrior-scholars,” he said.

Quinnipiac has long been committed to helping our nation’s veterans, along with active duty and reserve military members, to reach their educational goals. The university has partnered with both the U.S. Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration to provide veterans with a comprehensive set of benefits that fit with their military experience.

Since 2009, Quinnipiac has proudly participated in the "Yellow Ribbon Program." Part of the Post 9/11 GI-Bill, this initiative provides funds for eligible veterans who served after September 10, 2001. The university matches a portion of the VA contribution — up to $15,000 a year — through grant and scholarship programs.
