How Does RIC Rank for Veterans?

Rhode Island College 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.

How Many Veterans Go to RIC?

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 206 GI Bill® students at RIC. Since the total enrollment at the school is 7,072, approximately 2.91% of the students at RIC are utilizing the GI Bill® to help pay for 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.
