How Does Berks Technical Institute Rank for Veterans?
How Many Veterans Go to Berks Technical Institute?
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 12 GI Bill® students at Berks Technical Institute. There are 429 students enrolled at Berks Technical Institute. This means that approximately 2.80% use the GI Bill® to help pay for tuition, fees, and other expenses. 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.
