Veteran Advantage

D'Youville is consistently ranked as a top school for veterans because of our dedication to its military-aligned student community.

More veterans enroll at D'Youville than at any other school in Western New York. We've created special benefits and services tailored to our military, veteran and/or veteran dependent population, so that you can achieve your academic goals.
