    Duquesne Again Ranked in Top of Nation’s Military-Friendly Colleges

    For the second year, the School of Leadership and Professional Advancement (SLPA) at Duquesne University has been selected as one of America's Top Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities by Military Advanced Education.

    In its fourth annual listing, Military Advanced Education considered many criteria, including financial aid and other services available to service members, as well as online coursework and credit for military training.

    This recognition is one of the indicators illustrating SLPA's pride and commitment in serving our veterans and military students," said Dean Dorothy Bassett. "With a dedicated director of military education, Duquesne is committed to working with our military students and their families."

    SLPA offers master's degrees and accelerated bachelor's degrees in formats convenient for adult students, including Saturday classes on campus and classes entirely online. Special military tuition rates are available for service members and eligible veterans. Duquesne University is also a Yellow Ribbon Program participant.

    Duquesne University

    Founded in 1878, Duquesne is consistently ranked among the nation's top Catholic research universities for its award-winning faculty and tradition of academic excellence. The University is nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report and the Princeton Review for its rich academic programs in nine schools of study for nearly 10,000 graduate and undergraduate students, and by the Washington Monthly for service and contributing to students' social mobility. Duquesne is a member of the U.S. President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll with Distinction for its contributions to Pittsburgh and communities around the globe. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Princeton Review's Guide to Green Colleges acknowledge Duquesne's commitment to sustainability.
