How Does CIU Rank for Veterans?
How Many Veterans Go to CIU?
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 86 GI Bill® students at CIU. There are 2,098 students enrolled at CIU. This means that approximately 4.10% 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.
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.
