BROOKLYN and PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – January 6, 2020 – St. Joseph’s College (SJC) is pleased to announce that it has been named among Military Times’ Best for Vets: Colleges 2020. SJC earned the #29 spot on the 2020 list for its attention to military and veteran students; retention and graduation rates; benefits offered and accreditation. 

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of the best colleges for veterans,” said Erin D’Eletto, SJC’s director of military and veterans services. “As our military and veteran students enhance our college community in countless ways, we are privileged to assist them in their transition from military to civilian life, and to support their personal, academic and professional success.”

To compile the list, Military Times surveyed hundreds of colleges and universities across the U.S. on policies related to military and veteran students, academic outcomes and military-supportive cultures, among other defining factors. Responses were evaluated based on the needs of veterans in areas such as university culture, student support, academic policies, academic outcomes, cost and financial aid.
