Continuing Education at Hunter College, in partership with PROVE at Hunter College School of Social Work (Project for Return and Opportunity for Veterans Education), is pleased to announce that eligible veterans may use their Post- 9/11 GI Bill benefits towards our Certificate Program offerings. 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 including Healthcare & Fitness, Computer Tech, Business and more!
If you are a veteran interested in continuing your education at Hunter, submit your benefits application to the Department of Veterans Affairs. To register for a certificate program, you must call our office at 212-650-3850 or visit us on 68th Street & Lexington Avenue, East Building, Room 1022, to learn more about using your GI Bill benefits and to begin your registration. You will need to provide a copy of your educational benefits letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs at the time of your registration. Our staff will then complete the VA Enrollment Certification and submit it to the VA.
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.
The Certificate Programs listed below have been approved for veterans and other eligible beneficiaries. To learn more about each of these approved programs, browse our catalog or visit each webpage to view certificate brochures. You may also insert the certificate codes into on our online registration portal.
PROVE, Project for Return and Opportunity in Veterans Education, was founded to serve student veterans by assisting their transition from military service to college life and beyond. PROVE’s goal is to help improve retention and graduation rates among student veterans by working with and utilizing the special skills and talents of student veterans. Hunter College has been a PROVE site since 2008. The PROVE team aims to help meet the needs of student veterans ranging from navigating the world of GI benefits to providing a cohesive, safe and friendly environment for student veterans to thrive as they transition to this new stage of life. At Hunter College, the PROVE team works out of the Student Veteran Resource Center in C-118 North Building. The SVRC is open to all veterans, reservists, and active duty service members regardless of discharge status.
