Continuing Education at Hunter College is pleased to announce that eligible veterans may use their Post- 9/11 GI Bill benefits* towards our Certificate Program offerings. The Certificate Programs listed below have been approved for veterans and other eligible beneficiaries.
*Due to the part-time nature of Continuing Education courses, in most instances the benefits will cover the tuition but not the living allowance. Veterans must be enrolled in 10 clock hours/week to be eligible for the living allowance under the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
Veterans who are interested in applying for one of these certificate programs should call or visit our office to learn more about using your GI Bill benefits and to begin your registration.
Office: 695 Park Avenue, Room E1022, New York, NY 10065
Note: You must call or visit our office if you intend to use your GI Bill benefits so that we can complete and submit the required paperwork for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
In order to use your GI Bill benefits, you will need to provide a copy of your educational benefits letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs at the time of your registration. Once we have your letter, our office will complete the VA Enrollment Certification and submit it to the Department of Veterans Affairs. For more information, please review the Post 9/11 GI Bill handout.
If you have not applied for your benefits, please download this form and submit it to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Our Certificate Programs allow you to pursue a quality education in a short amount of time. Each program gives you the knowledge and skills to pursue a career in a variety of fields.
