A large number of veterans attending a college means the college and faculty are more used to supporting and accommodating the needs of those with prior military experience.

Since the total enrollment at the school is 25,628, approximately 0.01% of the students at University of Virginia are utilizing the GI Bill® to help pay for their education. For context, let's take this into consideration. According to the Student Veterans of America, approximately three to four per cent of American college students 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).
