Education Benefit Counseling


Veterans Outreach Center Education Counseling Services

In cooperation with area colleges and the NYS Department of Veterans Affairs, offers strong pathways of supportive services, information, access to resources, mentoring opportunities and financial aid application assistance for veterans in school or considering higher education.

Did you know that many veterans are eligible for more than one education benefit program? Including:

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33)

  • Montgomery GI Bill-Active Duty (MGIB-AD, Chapter 30)

  • Montgomery GI Bill-Selected Reserve (MGIB-SR, Chapter 1606)

  • Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP, Chapter 1607)

  • Veterans Education Assistance Program (VEAP).

With so many different programs and Federal and State education benefits, we can assist you in helping you plan and package your benefits to get the most out of what you’ve earned.

Call today for an appointment with David Oliver, Education Services Advisor and Afghanistan combat veteran, who understands the transition process from service to civilian and student life.
