Veteran/Military Dependents

As an office we recognize that Veteran/Military dependents, though not considered Veterans themselves, often help and support the Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Airman, or Coastguardsman during their service commitment. To assist you during your transition into our college community please find the following resources below outlining different services from the Office of Military and Veterans Services, to include other areas. If you have any questions as you enter our college community we welcome you to contact our office at (718) 281-5767 or VeteransServices @qcc.cuny.edu.
