Veterans & Military

You are here

You Serve Your Country. Now Let Medaille Serve You.

Medaille College is proud to be a supporter of members of the military. As a top Military Friendly College in New York, Medaille is with you every step of the way as you consider your educational options and pursue a college degree.

Below are the many ways that Medaille supports veterans in their transition from military to college life.

Discounted Tuition for Active Military

Medaille College is dedicated to helping military Veterans like you earn your degree while you serve in active duty. Medaille offers active military a discounted tuition rate for Undergraduate programs in the Adult & Graduate division.  The per credit rate is $250.

Active duty includes United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. Documentation of “active military status” and an ID are required. Reservists called up to “active military status” must provide a copy of the orders showing the time frame of the active duty service in order to receive the discounted tuition rate. If the active duty time frame is extended, a copy of the extension orders must be provided.

The discount program is not available if active duty military status changes to reservist or veteran status. However, you can explore other military benefit programs such as the Montgomery GI Bill®, Yellow Ribbon Program, or Post 911 GI Bill®. Recipients of the military discount are not eligible for other Medaille scholarships.
