Veterans and Military Affiliated

Thank you for your service! Houghton College welcomes military veterans and their families to our community. We have a long tradition of commitment to and support of our armed services. Through our Yellow Ribbon School status and our recent designation as a Military Friendly School in 2019-2020 through G.I. Jobs Magazine, Houghton continues to seek opportunities to serve our military students and their families with the highest level of care.

Researching your State and Federal Benefits

  • State: See if you qualify for any state Veterans educational benefits. Visit this web page for information about the New York State Veterans Tuition Award (NYSVTA).
  • Federal: Contact the Veterans Administration to find out what benefits you qualify for under your military service contract or visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website. Many Veterans qualify for more than one type of benefit, so you need to determine which benefit would help you best achieve your educational goals. To do this, you can use the Benefits Comparison Tool at the Department of Veterans Affairs website, or you call them at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Central time Monday thru Friday.
