Veterans Services

Welcome Veterans, Current Military and Family Members

The Veterans Office provides information about benefits, resources, and services to past and current members of the armed forces as well as their family members. The unique feature of this office is that staffing is done with veterans who are students at the College. The Office, consequently, provides a space where military service members and their family members attending SUNY Schenectady are not only able to obtain important information, but can also link up with others on campus who may have similar experiences and concerns.

SUNY Schenectady’s Veterans’ Office partners with community agencies and organizations to provide informative programs especially geared for military families. Some of our programs have included veteran-specific student orientations, veterans’ resource fairs, and presentations about transitioning to civilian life. Please visit the Veterans Office to learn how you can get involved.

If you would like to receive emails alerts about upcoming military-related programs, activities, and resources at SUNY Schenectady, please contact Dr. Ellen Wertlieb at View our Military Wall of Honor.
