San Diego colleges rank among top schools for veterans in U.S.

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Cal State San Marcos ranked 20th and San Diego State University 38th on a list of the best colleges for veterans, released Tuesday by Military Times.

The publication created the rankings by submitting survey questions to the schools and using data from the U.S. Department of Education. The number of students with military backgrounds, academic and staff support and the post-9/11 GI Bill were among the factors taken into consideration.

"We are honored and proud to be recognized for our commitment and support of our veterans," said Joan Putnam, director of the Joan and Art Barron Veterans Center at SDSU. "Being ranked among the top 50 best colleges for vets will help spread the word nationally that SDSU offers a high quality education while providing excellent support services to student veterans."

About 3,200 veterans, active-duty military, reservists and dependents attend SDSU, according to the school.

The University of San Diego ranked 84th on the Military Times list.

The University of Nebraska at Omaha was first.
