How Does Hostos Rank for Veterans?
How Many Veterans Go to Hostos?
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 68 GI Bill® students at Hostos. The school has a total enrollment of 6,136 students. This means that around 1.11% 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.
