Carrie Wofford, president of the advocacy group Veterans Education Success, says veterans have been particularly targeted by for-profit colleges because of the money they bring with the GI Bill, which pays more than $24,000 for college annually.

“Some colleges unfortunately are just after the money and aren’t seeking to provide a great education,” Wofford says. She encourages prospective students to ask, “How is the college spending your GI Bill?” She says, “Colleges should be giving you that amount of education, but sadly many for-profit colleges siphon away a lot of the GI Bill from education and spend it instead on private jets and marketing.”
