How Many Veterans Go to BC?

Colleges with a large veteran population are better equipped to support and accommodate those who have had military experience.

The VA reports that there are 413 G.I. Bill® students at BC. There are 12,286 students enrolled at BC. This means that approximately 3.36% use the GI Bill® to help pay for tuition, fees, and other expenses. Putting that into perspective, the Student Veterans of America estimates that about three-four percent of all college students in America 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). This does not include active-duty military personnel who are attending the college via Tuition Assistance. Therefore, the potential total military population could be larger than this.
