What You'll Find in Our Veterans Report on CWU:
Central Washington University 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.
Colleges with a large veteran population are better equipped to support and accommodate those who have had military experience.
According to the VA, there are 711 GI Bill® students at CWU. Around 6.36% of students at the school are using the GI Bill® since the total enrollment at CWU is 11,174. 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). 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.
