DENTON (UNT), Texas -- "Military Advanced Education" has awarded the University of North Texas the designation of a Top School in its "2015 Military Advanced Education Guide to Colleges and Universities," a guide which measures the best practices in military and veteran education. The guide was released in the December issue of "Military Advanced Education."

The guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at more than 600 institutions, including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year and two-year colleges. "Institutions are evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support and online support services.

"We believe the guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising service members about their educational opportunities," said Kelly Fodel, editor of "Military Advance Education," which is now in its eigth year of publication. "We used strict criteria to individually evaluate the submissions of respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year."

James Davenport, director of student affairs for student veterans services at UNT, believes that being recognized as a Top School by "Military Advanced Education" means that UNT's reputation as "one of the top military and veteran's schools in the country" is even more solidified.

"It means veterans can come to UNT and trust that they will receive the services they need and we will do whatever we can to minimize the runaround they may get on some other campuses," said Davenport. "The transition is not always easy from combat to civilian-college life, and we will provide services to ease that transition the best we can."

Though for Davenport, the importance of this award extends beyond the bounds of the military sphere at UNT.

"For the UNT population as a whole, this is just another reason to take pride in all the things UNT does," said Davenport.
