A large number of veterans attending a college means the college and faculty are more used to supporting and accommodating the needs of those with prior military experience.

According to the VA, there are 71 G.I. Bill® students at Augsburg. Since the total enrollment at the school is 3,346, approximately 2.12% of the students at Augsburg are utilizing the GI Bill® to help pay for their education. For context, let's take this into consideration. According to the Student Veterans of America, approximately three to four per cent of American college students are veterans.

Note, this figure includes all chapters of the GI Bill® program (e.g., Post-9/11, Montgomery GI Bill, Reserve Education Assistance Program, and Veteran Readiness and Employment). It does not include any active-duty military personnel that are attending this college via Tuition Assistance, so the total military population is potentially larger than this.
