For the third time in six years, Viqtory Media has named the university the No. 1 Military Friendly tier 1 research institution.

Previously recognized as the top-ranked Military Friendly school in 2017 and 2021, UGA has been recognized as a Military Friendly school since the Student Veterans Resource Center’s inception in 2013.

To support student veterans and service members, the SVRC works to ease the transition from the military to higher education, improve the UGA experience and facilitate career readiness. Collaborating with units across campus, the SVRC also guides students to maximize their military benefits and to explore all their available opportunities.

The average age of UGA’s 275 student veterans is 33 years old. Many of them have families, dependents, hold full-time jobs and commute longer distances to campus.

In addition, more than 20% of these students still serve with the active-duty military or the reserves.
