How Many Veterans Go to Avila?

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 54 G.I. Bill® students at Avila. The school has a total enrollment of 1,414 students. This means that around 3.82% of students are using the GI Bill® to help them afford 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.

This number includes all chapters of the GI Bill®, e.g. Post-9/11, Montgomery GI Bill and Reserve Education Assistance Program. It also includes 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.
