This means that approximately 2.20% 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).
