Our Veterans Report on Bennington Includes:
Bennington College was not included in this year's [Best Schools for Veterans ranking[(/rankings/veterans). This could be due to a number of reasons, including insufficent data.
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 9 GI Bill® students at Bennington. Around 1.13% of students at the school are using the GI Bill® since the total enrollment at Bennington is 799. 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.
Unfortunately, Bennington does not offer credit for military training.
There have been no complaints registered to the VA for this college.
