Veterans Affairs

Military, Veterans and Uniform Services

New York Medical College has a strong commitment to those who have served our country in uniform. In addition to offering tuition support to those who serve our country, we help them by serving as a contact and liaison with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and assisting with paperwork and other requirements.

“Taken together, our Yellow Ribbon program participation, online programs and tuition discounts are a concerted effort to make our advanced educational programs more accessible to veterans and active-duty personnel worldwide.”

Yellow Ribbon program

NYMC, the School of Health Sciences and Practice, and the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences participate in the Yellow Ribbon program, an extension of the Post-9/11 GI Bill that enables active-duty military personnel, veterans and uniform services employees to attend NYMC at little or no cost. Through Yellow Ribbon, the VA and degree-granting institutions such as NYMC can allocate funds to cover any tuition balance not addressed by the standard Post-9/11 GI Bill benefit.

To be eligible, applicants must have served at least three years of active duty beginning on or after September 11, 2001. For more information, view the Student Application Policy/Procedures for the Yellow Ribbon Program.

50% discount on online programs

The School of Health Science and Practice also provides a 50% tuition discount for its Master of Public Health degree and graduate certificates for all active-duty members of the military and the U.S. Public Health Service. For more information, contact Director of Recruitment Pamela Suett in the Admissions Office at 914-594-4759 or shsp_admissions@nymc.edu.
