The City University maintains a special outreach program for returning veterans who might not be familiar with the opportunities for college study open to them.
Veterans desiring to avail themselves of the benefits provided under Public Law 89-358 may register at Lehman as matriculants, paying tuition and fees. If they matriculate, the College may allow them up to eight credits for United States Armed Forces Institute courses in which they have passed final examinations.
Matriculated veterans of the U.S. armed forces who (a) have paid tuition and fees, (b) are upper-division students (an upper-division student is one who has received passing grades in courses representing 61 or more credits), and (c) have satisfactorily completed a minimum of 30 credits at Lehman will be awarded credit, but must file an application in order to receive it.
The Veterans Counseling Service (Shuster Hall, Room 238) advises veterans on the benefits for which they are eligible. The application form for benefits to be paid by the Veterans Administration may be obtained in the Office of the Registrar (Shuster Hall, Room 114).
