Texas A&M University-Kingsville once again ranks among the top universities in the nation when it comes to providing access to higher education for veterans, according to a recent report by a leading veterans publication.

G.I. Jobs Magazine ranks A&M-Kingsville in their 2013 Military Friendly Schools List. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students. The list includes private and public universities, community colleges and trade schools.

The university’s profile page on the G.I. Jobs Magazine website notes the growth in student enrollment, the investment in new construction and renovations on campus and the university’s commitment to research.

According to information from the 2011-2012 academic year, 1,200 military or veteran students and about 300 military dependents were enrolled at A&M-Kingsville.

About the Military Friendly Schools list 

The Military Friendly Schools list is compiled through exhaustive research beginning last April during which G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Methodology, criteria and weighting for the list were developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Committee consisting of educators and administrators from several organizations, including U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Student Veterans of America, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Toledo, Duquesne University, Colorado State University and Lincoln Technical Institute.
