How Does BRCC Rank for Veterans?

Baton Rouge Community College was not ranked on the <nil> [Best Schools for Veterans list[(/rankings/veterans). This could be due to a number of reasons, including insufficent data.

How Many Veterans Go to BRCC?

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.

The VA reports that there are 15 GI Bill® students at BRCC. The school has a total enrollment of 7,376 students. This means that around 0.20% 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.

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.
