Private Colleges Serving Tennessee


TICUA Member Institutions Are Proud
to Serve Veterans

     3 TICUA member institutions are certified by the State as VETS Campuses. The TN Veterans Education Transition Support (VETS) Program was opened to TICUA member institutions in 2016 and recognizes campuses that prioritize outreach to veterans and deliver services necessary to create a supportive environment for student veterans.

     Every undergraduate-serving TICUA member institution has partnered with the Veterans Administration through the Post 9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program agreeing to make additional scholarship funds available to veterans beyond the GI Bill entitlement.

     16 TICUA member institutions have been rated as military friendly by Victory Media.

       TICUA commissioned a December 2015 study on recruitment and retention programs for veteran students at TICUA member institutions.
