Undergraduate Tuition and Fees for Military and Veteran Students

Tuition and fees are subject to change without prior notice by action of the SUNY Board of Trustees.

All active-duty military, guard, reservists and veterans are eligible for an Empire State College military tuition grant of $20 per credit to offset their educational costs. The net tuition for military students is $250 per credit. All fees, except service-related fees and residency fees for residency-based courses, are waived.
