Veterans & Military Students

SUNY Sullivan welcomes applications from students who are currently serving or who have served in one of the branches of the United States Armed Forces, and we thank you for your service.

Our faculty and staff look forward to supporting you in your educational goals here at SUNY Sullivan. As an institution that is approved under the Veterans Educational Assistance Act (GI Bill), we want to help you maximize your benefits.

You should complete the admissions requirements listed online, as well as completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Once you are accepted, you should complete our Next Steps checklist.

Once you have registered for classes, you must be certified by one of SUNY Sullivan’s certifying officers:

  • Jennifer King, Director of Learning and Student Development Services/Counselor, 845-434-5750 x4335, E212D
  • Klu Padu, Career Placement and Transfer Advisor, 845-434-5750 x4202, E212F

The certification process includes submitting a copy of your Certificate of Eligibility, which you will receive after completing the application process. This only needs to be submitted once. You will also need to submit a copy of your class schedule to one of the certifying officers listed above; please notify a certifying officer every semester when you have officially registered for classes.

If you have earned an Expeditionary Medal and have an honorable discharge, apply for Veterans Tuition Assistance through New York State’s Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC).

To apply for VA benefits for the first time, you should visit the Veterans Affairs website. You may also call 1-888 GI BILL-1 (888-442-4551) to have an application mailed to you. You are welcome to go to the Learning Center’s computer lab (in the E Building) if you do not have access to a computer.

The Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 requires educational institutions to make certain disclosures to students using federal military and/or VA educational benefits. To learn more, contact the Financial Aid Office at


We strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid as soon as you start your application to ensure that you will have the aid you need.

Once you are admitted, there are Next Steps to Becoming a General that you’ll also need to complete.
