If you're a veteran or a dependent, our dedicated Veterans Services Office will work with you to make the most of your veteran resources.

The application and admission process for veterans is a bit more involved than for the typical student, but our Veterans Services Office is eager to guide you. We'll ensure you don't miss out on any opportunities specific to veterans from GI Bill benefits to the Yellow Ribbon Program to D'Youville-specific grants

The first step to securing your benefits is to determine if you will be applying as a veteran or a veteran dependent student. Use the definitions below to begin the process and discover your benefits.

Tip: Complete the online FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon as possible after January 1 to be considered for the widest range of financial assistance. D'Youville's code is 002712.
