The Veteran and Military Services Office provides one-stop support services for military aligned students entering college. The office coordinates support services for current and prospective students who are veterans, Reserve/Guard servicemembers, and/or military dependents (spouses/children). Support services include recruitment and advisement, admissions processing and financial aid counseling, GI Bill certification, and official advisement to the Student Veterans of America organization. The office also provides campus benefits such as free parking, securing in-state tuition rates, priority registration, no late fee payments, and a separate military orientation.

Military, veteran, and/or dependent (spouse or child) students may be eligible to receive aid for approved postsecondary programs and certificates. Awards include GI Bill benefits, Department of Defense (DoD) Tuition Assistance (TA), New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (NYS HESC) scholarships, and multiple local college scholarships. Students should contact the Veteran and Military Services Office for assistance in determining eligibility for these programs.
