Our Veterans Report on Colgate Includes:
Colgate University was not ranked on the <nil> [Best Schools for Veterans list[(/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.
The VA reports that there are 16 GI Bill® students at Colgate. The school has a total enrollment of 3,054 students. This means that around 0.52% 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). 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.
