Veteran enrollment growth at independent institutions is strong
The national trend for veteran enrollment in higher education is declining. However, Michigan’s veteran enrollment is positive with the strongest growth for Michigan’s independent, non-profit colleges and universities. Between 2014 and 2015, veteran enrollment increased by 21 percent at MICU member institutions. Veteran enrollment in Michigan’s public universities increased by two percent during this same time. Between 2014 and 2015, veteran enrollment in four-degree programs and graduate programs declined by two percent nationally. MICU member institutions are working to reverse this trend and better serve veteran students.
