UNC Charlotte Among 'Best for Vets'
UNC Charlotte is one of the 125 four-year institutions to make the Military Times "Best for Vets: Colleges 2016" rankings.
An annual survey in its six year, the Military Times rankings provide the most comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement.
David Vacchi, associate director for veteran student services, said being ranked by Military Times is "an important first-time achievement for UNC Charlotte as we are finally being recognized for the great work the University is doing for veterans every day. There are areas in which we can improve as a campus and the Veterans Services Office will be working diligently to make the campus even more welcoming for veterans."

OASES Celebrates Record Number of Scholarships
Often nontraditional students face challenges beyond those of college-aged students as they begin or return to college. Scholarships are one way to overcome the financial barrier, and 2015 was a record-setting year for the Office of Adult Students and Evening Services. This year, OASES awarded nearly $150,000 in scholarships to 78 students. The recipients and donors recently attended a luncheon to celebrate this milestone.
Tina McEntire, associate provost for enrollment management, congratulated the recipients and expressed appreciation to the individuals and organizations that provided the much-needed support. She noted that the University continues to enroll greater numbers of first-year and transfer students with nearly 75 percent of undergraduates in need of financial aid.
"Interest in UNC Charlotte is at an unprecedented level, with record numbers of applicants and new enrolled students who have stronger academic backgrounds and who are more diverse than ever," said McEntire. "OASES continues to serve our nontraditional population, and thanks to the generous support of our donors, these students are on the way to achieving their degrees."
