The City University of New York welcomes all veterans and future veterans and their families to continue their education at one of our 24 unique institutions. You are considered a veteran at CUNY if you are currently engaged or have previously engaged in active duty of the U.S. Armed Forces for at least one day. Veterans must be released under a condition other than dishonorable discharge.
We have made applying to CUNY easy for veteran applicants through a few simple steps: Explore, Prepare, Apply, and After You Are Admitted.
Step 1: Explore
Discover information on academic programs, student life, tuition and fees, financial aid and more. Visit www.cuny.edu/explore to get started.
Step 2: Prepare to apply
As a veteran applicant, it is important that you first find out what information will be needed to apply to the college and program of your choice. We recommend that you download and complete the Admission Application Worksheet along with this Quick Guide to Apply for Veterans and Future Veterans. Visit www.cuny.edu/prepare to download these items and review the appropriate information for freshman and transfer applicants.
Determine if you will apply as either a freshman or transfer applicant. Generally, military training is not considered for transfer admission. Applicants who have military training only (in addition to a high school diploma or GED) should apply for freshman admission.
