The CUNY Office of Veterans Affairs (COVA)  is dedicated to fostering a sense of community and to developing a channel of communication among veteran and reservist students, and with faculty, staff and administration.

The City University of New York (CUNY) welcomes and supports veterans and reservists on its campuses and recognizes the contribution that they make as citizens and students. CUNY is proud of the level of diversity and academic excellence that our 3,000 veterans and reservists bring to our campuses.

This website is a virtual one-stop source of information regarding services for veterans, reservists and their dependents and survivors. In addition, it is a valuable resource for faculty and staff who, in the course of their duties, may require such information. It is a guide to educational benefits, entitlements, counseling and advocacy resources, which will assist veterans in pursuing their academic and civilian careers.

The CUNY Office of Veterans Affairs (COVA)  team is  dedicated to assisting students with any questions.
