Website Ranks U of M as Tennessee’s Top College for Students Interested in Military Service

For release: August 21, 2013
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901-678-2843

The College Database has recognized the University of Memphis as the top college in Tennessee for students interested in military service.

Each college or university on the list of Top Colleges in Tennessee for Future Service Members offers at least two ROTC programs to active students, as well as in-state tuition below $20,000 per year. Private, for-profit schools are excluded.

The U of M ranks first in the state with an affordable annual tuition rate and three ROTC programs: Army, Navy and Air Force.

With the cost of college a concern for many families, it’s important for students to find an affordable post-secondary option with demonstrated academic excellence. However, it’s equally important that students interested in service have the opportunity to explore military programs while working toward a degree.

“Military service is critical to America’s future. It’s a profession that requires a solid academic foundation, along with core leadership skills,” said U of M Provost David Rudd. “We take great pride in our ability to contribute to developing future military leaders, and to do so in an affordable and effective manner.” 

The College Database is a not-for-profit organization whose goal is to provide free information about educational options both nationally and locally to students, parents and other interested parties.
