Local, State, & Federal Resources
Going back to college means coordinating many aspects of your life. At Roberts, we are committed to helping you achieve your educational and career goals and have created this page to provide you valuable contacts, links and resources at your fingertips to help get you started.
Researching your State and Federal Benefits
- State: See if you qualify for any state Veterans educational benefits. Visit this web page for information about the New York State Veterans Tuition Award (NYSVTA).
- Federal: Contact the Veterans Administration to find out what benefits you qualify for under your military service contract or visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website. Many Veterans qualify for more than one type of benefit, so you need to determine which benefit would help you best achieve your educational goals. To do this, you can use the Benefits Comparison Tool at the Department of Veterans Affairs website, or you call them at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Central time Monday thru Friday.
