Education That Supports the Military, Veterans and Uniform Services

“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.”

Captain Robert W. Amler, MD
U.S. Public Health Service, Retired
Dean, School of Health Sciences and Practice

New York Medical College's commitment to be a military/uniform-services/veteran-friendly higher learning institution is demonstrated by the College’s participation in the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Funds provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs will allow veterans to attend New York Medical College each year at little or no cost. Veterans have access to master and doctoral degree programs.

As of August 1, 2014 the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will cover up to a maximum of $20,235.02 per academic year and New York Medical College School of Health Sciences and Practice and the VA will share a designated amount over the maximum (see Student Application Policy/Procedures for the Yellow Ribbon Program). Allowances for housing, books and supplies are also included in the program.

To be eligible, veterans must have served at least three years of active duty beginning on or after September 11, 2001. Veterans from any state are eligible to attend New York Medical College School of Health Sciences and Practice and receive Yellow Ribbon Veterans Affairs funding.

The public health programs at the School of Health Sciences and Practice are accredited by CEPH (Council on Education for Public Health).
