Texas State University-San Marcos was ranked 13th in the nation among the best four-year colleges and universities for veterans in Military Times EDGE magazine.

Texas State falls closely behind such schools as Texas A&M University, Ohio State University and Arizona State University in the rankings. The university is noted for presenting several benefits to veteran students such as: costing less than $250 per credit, being under the GI Bill cap, providing a veterans’ office and accepting ACE credits.

This ranking comes as the latest acknowledgment for the university among several other recognitions it has received regarding its veteran affairs. It has also been named a “military friendly school” by GI Jobs magazine for three consecutive years.

Military Times EDGE is a supplemental magazine found in subscriber copies of Air Force Times, Army Times, Marine Corps Times and Navy Times. The publication is designed to help service members control and meet their educational and professional life goals.
