To apply for veterans’ benefits, bring a certified copy (or copy #4) of your DD214 form to the office of the registrar with your acceptance letter. MCNY is approved for the training of veterans by the New York State Department of Education.
Veterans may be certified for benefits for one semester at a time and must contact the registrar prior to the start of each new semester to be recertified. Veterans should be aware that any change in student status, such as nonattendance or withdrawal, may affect their benefits and must be reported immediately to the registrar.
The office of student services provides tutoring to veterans and counselors make every effort to assist veterans in making the most of their potential as students. For more information, students should contact: New York State Regional Office of the Veterans Administration, 252 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10001, 212-620-6514.
