If you are a United States military veteran, Veteran’s Affairs provides you with academic counseling and educational benefit certification. To receive education benefits, you must be certified by one of our Veteran’s Certifying Officials. Your eligibility and benefit payments are based on the length and time of your service and the number of credits and length of the courses in which you are registered.
To be certified, submit all required documentation to Veteran’s Affairs. Your certification will be processed in a timely manner and sent electronically to the Veteran’s Office in Buffalo, NY. They will then determine your eligibility. This usually takes 6-8 weeks.
When you apply for Financial Aid, keep in mind that any education benefits you receive must be reported on your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form. If you have specific questions please contact the Veteran’s Office in Buffalo, NY at 1.888.442.4551.
Veterans Educational Services assists you with your transition from military life to civilian academia. We provide military veterans, current service members and their families with access to an affordable, quality education and comprehensive support services.
