How Does UNI Rank for Veterans?

University of Northern Iowa was not included in this year's [Best Schools for Veterans ranking[(/rankings/veterans). This usually means that not enough data related to veterans was available.

How Many Veterans Go to UNI?

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.

According to the VA, there are 251 GI Bill® students at UNI. Around 2.64% of students at the school are using the GI Bill® since the total enrollment at UNI is 9,507. 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.

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. It does not include any active-duty military personnel that are attending this college via Tuition Assistance, so the total military population is potentially larger than this.
