Division of Applied Undergraduate Studies Admissions-Veterans

The NYU School of Professional Studies is proud to welcome US veterans, and their eligible spouses and dependents, to our programs. In recognition of your service and valor, we are committed to facilitating your transition from the military to the classroom, whether you are entering college for the first time, transferring from another school, or returning from deployment. As a veteran, you've built a unique skill set that is closely aligned with the practical knowledge and skills provided by our degrees. We look forward to helping you bridge the gap from service to your future career.


Our admissions process is selective and applicants are evaluated individually, based upon their ability to benefit from and contribute to the challenging environment the School offers. We do not have a separate admissions process for those who have served in the US military. We encourage you to learn more about our admissions and application process, and we also invite you to meet with a dedicated admissions officer during our weekly, open office hours to learn more about your degree of interest.

NYU is committed to providing a supportive environment that helps veterans and active duty personnel pursue their academic and professional goals, become involved in campus life, and connect and network with other veterans/active-duty personnel.

An NYU degree is well within reach for those who served honorably in the United States Armed Forces. NYU is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which provides scholarship assistance from the University and the US Department of Veterans Affairs.

To be considered for Yellow Ribbon benefits, an individual must meet the criteria to receive the maximum Post 9/11 GI Bill benefit. An individual may be eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Enhancement if he/she:

  • Served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001 of at least 36 months
  • Was honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and had served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
  • Is a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based upon a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria, as described by the US Department of Veterans Affairs

The US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is currently accepting applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill benefit. To qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Enhancement, you must apply to the VA. The VA will determine your eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill and issue you a Certificate of Eligibility. You may then contact the VA Certifications Team at certifications@nyu.edu or visit NYU Veterans Benefits.

In addition to being a participant in the Yellow Ribbons program, enrolled veterans/active-duty personnel may apply for federal aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
