Military Personnel (and their families) and Veterans


Veterans of the armed forces of the United States will be charged the in-state rate at CUNY senior colleges, and the in-city rate at CUNY community colleges, for 18 months from their first date of attendance at CUNY. If the veteran does not establish residency after 18 months, he/she will no longer be entitled to the resident tuition rate. For purposes of this policy, "veterans" are defined as individuals who were engaged in active military service (including basic training) and who were released under a condition other than "dishonorable".

Members of the armed forces of the United States on a full-time active duty station in the State of New York, and their spouses and dependent children, who enroll at a CUNY college, shall be charged the in-state tuition rate. Such students shall continue to be charged the in-state rate at CUNY even if they are subsequently discharged from military service.
