How Many Veterans Go to Bethel University Minnesota?

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 116 G.I. Bill® students at Bethel University Minnesota. The school has a total enrollment of 3,814 students. This means that around 3.04% of students are using the GI Bill® to help them afford their education. 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).
