Military Personnel (and their families) and Veterans
Veterans of the armed forces of the United States will be charged the in-state rate at CUNY senior colleges, and the in-city rate at CUNY community colleges, for 18 months from their first date of attendance at CUNY. If the veteran does not establish residency after 18 months, he/she will no longer be entitled to the resident tuition rate. For purposes of this policy, "veterans" are defined as individuals who were engaged in active military service (including basic training) and who were released under a condition other than "dishonorable".
Members of the armed forces of the United States on a full-time active duty station in the State of New York, and their spouses and dependent children, who enroll at a CUNY college, shall be charged the in-state tuition rate. Such students shall continue to be charged the in-state rate at CUNY even if they are subsequently discharged from military service.
United Nations Personnel
Foreign nationals employed by the United Nations, wishing to take advantage of the University's resident tuition rates, must present verification of their status as: 1) employee of the United Nations, 2) the spouse, or 3) a dependent of a United Nation employee. The verification required is at least an annual certification from the Office of Human Resources Management. It is recommended, however, that confirmation be obtained from the Personnel Officer at the United Nations each semester because employment status can change rather frequently. The employees, spouses of employees and dependent children of employees of the United Nations shall be deemed to be residents of New York City.
