Veteran Waiver Grants

KAB architectural detail

D’Youville offers college grant programs to veterans and dependents of veterans to achieve educational success in undergraduate and master’s degree programs.

Veterans Waiver Grant Program

Veterans, service members and/or reservists/guardsmen may be eligible for the D'Youville College Veteran Waiver. The DYC Veteran Waiver is up to 50% of the undergraduate and graduate full-time tuition. The Veteran Dependent Waiver is up to 20% of the undergraduate and graduate tuition.

This waiver is applicable to all programs at D'Youville College.

Eligibility Requirements:

Eligibility for the Veteran Waiver is determined by the following criteria:

  • Any student-veteran eligible to receive the Veteran Waiver (50%) is not eligible for the DYC grant. This is designed to be consistent with the rules governing other 50% waivers which prohibit the awarding of the DYC grant in conjunction with it.
  • The Veteran Waiver is for 50% of the tuition. 
  • The student-veteran must be registered at DYC as a half-time or more student (minimum 6 credits/semester, undergraduate and 4.5 credits/ semester, graduate).

Veteran and Veteran Dependent Waiver Policies

The DYC Veteran Waiver and Veteran Dependent Waiver are both restricted to tuition, fees, and other allowable charges.  These waivers can only be used to pay the balance of tuition and those fees and allowable charges after Veteran Administration Benefits, NY State TAP, other state tuition benefits and outside tuition benefits have been applied.

The D'Youville College policy is to always use outside funding first to pay the tuition and those fees before adding the DYC Veteran or Dependent Veteran Waivers.

The DYC Veteran Waiver is up to 50% of the student veteran's tuition. The Veteran Dependent Waiver is up to 20% of the student's tuition.

  1. Any student-veteran eligible to receive the Veteran Waiver (50%) is not eligible for the DYC grant. This is designed to be consistent with the rules governing other 50% waivers which prohibit the awarding of the DYC grant in conjunction with it.
  2. The Veteran Waiver is for 50% of the tuition up to the standard undergraduate and graduate tuition rate.
  3. Veteran students must be enrolled for at least 6 credit hours (undergraduate), 4.5 credits (graduate) to be eligible for the Veteran Waiver.
  4. Veteran students who receive the Yellow Ribbon award or the 50% Veteran Waiver are not eligible to receive a merit scholarship, endowed and restricted scholarships, D’Youville grant, graduate program merit, or graduate retention scholarships.
  5. Veteran students must submit all required documents to the veteran's office and financial aid office by the last day to withdraw without academic penalty, as stipulated in the college calendar. These documents include but may not be limited to the veteran's DD214 form, discharge papers, orders, the FAFSA form and verification documents if requested.
  6. All dependents of veterans eligible to receive the Dependents of Veterans Waiver (20%), or merit scholarship award, whichever is greater, shall be eligible for the DYC grant. This is designed to be consistent with rules governing the DYC grant in conjunction with all other DYC scholarships and grants. Those students who receive the merit scholarship rather than the Dependents of Veterans Waiver are subject to all merit scholarship policies.
  7. All dependents of veterans are eligible to receive endowed and restricted scholarships, or other college waivers (GNSH, family tuition waiver, etc.). The combined awards cannot exceed the cost of tuition.
  8. Veteran students or dependents of veterans who withdraw from the college or leave the college without filing for a leave of absence will lose their waiver or scholarship.
