Military Advanced Education and Transition (MAE&T) has awarded the College of Staten Island the designation of a Top School in its 2018 Guide to Colleges & Universities, measuring most effective methods in military and veteran education. The Guide is to be released this December, and is available online.

The Guide presents results of a questionnaire of the military-supportive policies enacted at hundreds of institutions including private, public, for-profit, not-for-profit, four-year, and two-year colleges. From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE&T’s 2018 Guide to Colleges & Universities arms students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Schools are not ranked in the Guide. Rather, the schools must obtain a minimum score in the survey to be named a Top School. This means that Top Schools must meet a certain threshold of military-supportive actions, as identified by MAE&T staff. This could include a veteran’s center, a dedicated veteran’s counselor, and financial incentives for military-affiliated students, to name just a few examples.
