How Does Butler Rank for Veterans?
How Many Veterans Go to Butler?
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 72 GI Bill® students at Butler. The school has a total enrollment of 5,544 students. This means that around 1.30% 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.
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. 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.
