Provisions in the “Veterans Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability Act of 2014” require all public universities to offer in-state tuition to honorably discharged veterans and dependents.
Such policy shall further provide that the payment and fees by any student who is not a resident of New York State shall be paid at a rate or charge no greater than that imposed for students who are residents of the state if such student is enrolled in University at Buffalo and attending said institution or educational unit in accordance with the federal GI Bills and in compliance with all applicable eligibility requirements thereof.
Please fill out the Residency Application for New York State Tuition Purposes—Military and submit required documents listed on the form.
We will accept applications for the Military and Veterans exceptions at any time for the current semester.
If you’ve submitted a residency application and have not received a decision from our office, you are still responsible for paying the amount due by the billing due date. Failure to pay the amount due will result in a late payment fee. You should also be aware of the financial liability deadlines, as these may occur while you are waiting for a decision from our office.
Applications and documents will NOT be accepted by fax or email. Communications are conducted through UB email, United States mail, or telephone. You will receive an approval or denial letter in the mail once a decision has been made.
If the deadline falls on a weekend, the deadline is the next business day.
