DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., December 15, 2014

DeVry University has been recognized by the Military Times in its annual Best for Vets: Colleges 2015 ranking of top colleges for military service members and veterans. DeVry University was ranked 15th on the list of top online and nontraditional schools. Results, which factored in statistics from the U.S. Department of Education, are based on survey responses from hundreds of schools and data, including academic success measures.

“We are honored to provide an education to those men and women who have served our country,” said Robert Paul, president of DeVry University. “From online classes and flexible scheduling options to specialized admissions, financial aid and career services advisors, we recognize the unique needs of active-duty military members, veterans and their families. We strive to provide these outstanding individuals with the skills and education they need to either enter or advance in their chosen fields, and to set them on the pathway to achieving their career goals.”

Colleges and universities selected for inclusion in Best for Vets: Colleges 2015 were evaluated in five categories: university culture, academic quality, student support, academic policies and financial aid.
