Cayuga Community College is committed to supporting student veterans.
Cayuga Community College welcomes veterans as an asset to our College community. We seek to ensure a successful transition from military service to college entry through degree completion.
Each semester, we host a veteran welcome session within the new student orientation program to explain the various veteran-specific student support services available through the College and its community partners. A veteran certifying official is available on each campus to assist veterans with their educational benefits compliance issues and refer them to other College resources specific to their needs. Student veterans on either campus are invited to join an SVA-affiliated Veterans Club.
SUPPORT SERVICES FOR STUDENT VETERANS INCLUDE:
- Academic advising
- Financial aid counseling
- Transition Assistance
- Accommodations for student veterans with disabilities
- Dedicated social space for gathering (e.g. a student lounge) reserved specifically for military service members and veterans
- Campus/social networking events planned specifically for veterans
- Industry-employer relationship programs available to active duty military students and veterans to assist with post-graduate employment outcomes
