How Does SCSU Rank for Veterans?

Southern Connecticut State University was not ranked on the <nil> [Best Schools for Veterans list[(/rankings/veterans). This usually means that not enough data related to veterans was available.

How Many Veterans Go to SCSU?

Colleges with a large veteran population are better equipped to support and accommodate those who have had military experience.

The VA reports that there are 301 GI Bill® students at SCSU. Around 3.23% of students at the school are using the GI Bill® since the total enrollment at SCSU is 9,331. 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.
