CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa has been named to Military Times "Best for Vets: Colleges 2014" rankings, which recognizes and rewards schools for their commitment to providing opportunities to America's veterans.

"As with all of the Best for Vets rankings, Best for Vets: Colleges is an editorially independent news project that evaluates the many factors that make an institution a good fit for military veterans," said Amanda Miller, editor of Military Times EDGE.

Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, and availability of specific programs to help service members.

This is just the most recent honor for UNI. Earlier this fall, G.I. Jobs Magazine selected UNI as a Military Friendly School for the fourth time.
