The rankings are published in full in the September issue of Military Times EDGE magazine and online at MilitaryTimes.com as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com.
The heralded series of Best for Vets survey-based rankings includes: Career & Technical Colleges, Employers, Colleges, Business Schools, Franchises, and Law Enforcement.
“As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Career & Technical 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.
To qualify for the list, schools were evaluated in five categories: university culture, student support, academic policies, academic quality and financial aid, with university culture and student support carrying the most weight.
The extensive evaluation process also factored in statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality, including student loan default rates, retention rates, graduation rates, student-faculty ratio and percentage of full-time faculty.
This year, IBMC College was ranked 31 on the list and was one of only two Colorado colleges (http://www.ibmc.edu) to receive the distinction.
