There is a New York State tuition assistance program for active members of the New York Army National Guard, the New York Air National Guard, and the New York Naval Militia. It provides tuition assistance for active members enrolled in a first degree program of study at CUNY.
The award covers tuition after all other financial aid has been applied to the tuition charges. Students must apply for federal and state financial aid and file a DMNA 96-1 form, which can be obtained from their individual National Guard unit. Continuation of the award will be dependent on good military standing, making satisfactory progress toward the degree, and on maintaining good academic standing for financial aid purposes.
