NLU One of the Best Schools for Veterans According to College Factual’s 2021 Ranking

NLU is among the top 10% of the best schools for U.S. Veterans

National Louis University is considered one of the best schools for veterans according to College Factual’s recent rankings.

NLU is in the top 10% of the country for veterans. More specifically it was ranked #155 out of 2,104 schools. It could not have earned this ranking without offering quality education, resources, and affordability to U.S. service members.

As Veteran’s Day Week continues, let’s extend our gratitude to our student veterans for their service, as well as our fantastic staff in the Veterans’ Resource Center for making NLU such a welcoming institution for those who have served.

Thank you!
