The City College of New York welcomes students who have served our country as members of the armed forces.

The City College of New York Office of Veterans Affairs collaborates with the CUNY Office of Veterans Affairs, NYC Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs and the State of New York’s Department of Veterans Affairs, to assists veterans in making a seamless transition from military service to the campus community. Significant resources are in place to aid in that transition.

The City College of New York is the flagship institution of the City University of New York system.  Our mission is to provide access and excellence in undergraduate and graduate education to a diverse student population.  Our commitment to achieving the vision and goals of our mission includes educating the veterans, guardsmen and reservists of the United States Armed Forces whose courageous service to their country must be rewarded by investing in their future and ensuring their academic success.

The City College Office of Veterans Affairs (OVA) is committed to recruiting, enrolling and retaining veteran students. The OVA will work in collaboration with the various offices on campus including student affairs, admissions, disability services, financial aid, registrar, wellness and counseling center and affirmative action to assist veterans in becoming acclimated to college life while obtaining veteran educational benefits and other available resources.
