Veterans and Military Affairs
SUNY Broome is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as a training facility for veterans and other eligible students. We currently coordinate services for more than 110 veterans who are attending classes and receiving veteran's benefits; tutorial assistance; referrals for counseling for financial, vocational and academic problems; veterans work-study job information; and important information about resources available to them at the college. This office acts as a direct liaison between SUNY Broome Community College and the Veterans Administration Regional Office in Buffalo regarding payment of benefits.
