Veteran Services at FLCC

Finger Lakes Community College recognizes the sacrifices of those who serve in the United States Armed Forces. We are grateful for the service student veterans provide to our country, and we are committed to making the transition from the military to the classroom a successful one.

Military Friendly Campus

FLCC is proud to be a military friendly school, and has been recognized by VIQTORY as Military Friendly® every year since achieving this designation in 2014.

With the Military Friendly designation, you are assured that FLCC meets or exceeds expectations as surveyed by current and past attendees.

We are here to support you and your family as you navigate the transition to the classroom.

In order to do that, we execute support services within three areas:

  • Securing as much college credit as possible for military services and training.
  • Securing maximum benefits for you and/or your dependents.
  • Connecting you with other veterans and outside agencies for continual support.

College Credit for Military Service

You've worked hard in the military—now you can save tuition dollars and classroom time! It’s possible that your service in the military has earned you college credit. Finger Lakes Community College awards military students credit toward a degree based on training, coursework, and occupational specialty.

Details About College Credit

In-State Tuition

If you are a veteran that recently relocated to New York State and are unable to get a Certificate of Residence, you may qualify for in-state tuition.

Contact Jon VanBlargan by email at for more information.

Veteran Benefits

If you are a veteran, or a survivor or dependent of a veteran, you may be eligible for veterans educational benefits. Services offered include application for educational benefits, student job placement, tutorial assistance and services for disabled veterans.

Connecting Veterans to Veterans

Connect with other veterans who have been successful in leveraging their military service to further their education. Finger Lakes Community College’s partnership with the Canandaigua VA Medical Center gives veterans access to a variety of resources that can help ease the transition from military to civilian life.

Connecting Veterans

The Johnny Isakson and David P. Roe, M.D. Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 requires educational institutions to make certain disclosures to students using federal military and/or VA educational benefits. To view and print a copy of an estimated personalized cost of attendance you can visit the SUNY Net Price Cost Calculator  and select Finger Lakes from the dropdown. Additional financial information can be found at the NCES College Navigator site.

The SUNY Financial Aid Plan (FAP) will provide a more in-depth analysis and accurate picture of student cost once the student has filed their FAFSA, completed a SUNY application, and has been accepted by a campus.

"After retiring from 21 years of military service, FLCC became my extended family, supporting me during my entire journey. They ensure the success of all veteran students and their families. I'm grateful and blessed to be a graduate of FLCC."
