The VA reports that there are 30 G.I. Bill® students at Teachers College. The school has a total enrollment of 4,547 students. This means that around 0.66% 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.
