Veteran's Educational Benefits

SUNY Morrisville congratulates you on your decision to serve our country. Whether you are a veteran, active duty service member, member of the National Guard, reservist or dependent, Morrisville would like to help you achieve your education goals. 

 Your membership in the U.S. Armed forces may qualify your and your dependents for one or more of the Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits.  Find out how to apply for the GI Bill and other VA education benefits by visiting the VA website.

The Department of Veterans Affairs launched an online GI Comparison Tool to make it easier for veterans, service members and dependents to calculate their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits and learn more about VA-approved colleges, universities and other education and training programs across the country.

Only currently enrolled students are eligible to receive benefits.  If you have questions contact the School Certifying Official for assistance.
