Annually, Military Times® invites career and technical colleges from across the U.S. to complete a rigorous survey comprised of 150 questions, about their operations involving current and former service members and their families. Additional data is then collected from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three Educational Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard, and the Cohort Default Rate Database. Institutions are independently evaluated in five key categories: university culture, student support, academic outcomes/quality, academic policies and cost and financial aid.
