KUTZTOWN, Pa. – Kutztown University was ranked in Military Times’ 2022 Best for Vets: Colleges rankings for the eighth straight year, the largest and most comprehensive ranking of schools for military service members and veterans.

Kutztown University offers many services for veterans and service members, including a Veterans Center. KU has a single point-of-contact who aids and coordinates services. To make the pursuit of academic goals more manageable, KU offers military education benefits assistance, academic advising, career planning, counseling and Army ROTC. KU awards credit for military training, CLEP and DANTES. Veterans’ liaisons are available in key offices, and faculty and staff participate in sensitivity training for veterans.

KU is among 11 Pennsylvania colleges and universities ranked in this year’s list and is one of four PA State System of Higher Education institutions recognized, including Clarion University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania and East Stroudsburg University.

KU's advisory board meets regularly to implement veteran-friendly policy. Its student veteran organization provides valuable services to students and the community through their programming and fundraisers.

Student success metrics (completion, retention, persistence, GPA) are the most important factor in determining the relative ranking of schools on this year’s list, followed closely by the range of military-specific resources and the level of financial assistance they offer. Admissions and registration policies, human resources and assorted miscellaneous considerations also factor into the scoring rubric.
