At Empire State College, we strive to make returning to college as easy as possible for our military students and their families. Our on base outreach assistants are available to meet with current active duty military members, their families, and civilian base personnel face-to-face. Pre-advising, including review of military transcripts; recommendation of possible degree programs; assistance with applications and support of current studies, is available by walk-in or scheduled appointment.
