SUNY College of Optometry is committed to serving students who have served our country as members of the military. The Office of Student Affairs will work in collaboration with various offices on campus including admissions, bursar, financial aid, registrar and career counseling to obtain the services & benefits necessary to successfully complete the Doctor of Optometry program.

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 SUNY Optometry 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.

Veterans and/or their dependents, eligible to receive VA education benefits, should contact the Financial Aid and Registrar’s Office below:
