Confidence. Clarity. Purpose.
Niagara University has a long history of honoring and supporting students who, like you, served all of us through service in our nation’s armed forces. Since its earliest days, countless numbers of soldiers and veterans have attended Niagara, enriching the campus and transforming the lives of others. Included among those veterans are two Medal of Honor recipients, General William Donovan and Lieutenant John Bobo, and a humanitarian nominated for sainthood, Fr. Nelson Baker. They, along with thousands of notable alumni, have made a difference in the world.
Since World War II, Niagara has welcomed many veterans who came back to school, either to begin or resume their education. In that same welcoming spirit, we welcome you to our campus and thank you for your service.
Schools reported on their benefits for veterans as part of U.S. News' annual statistical survey of undergraduate schools during spring and summer 2022. To provide military veterans and active-duty service members with data on which top-ranked schools offer benefits that can help them make pursuing a college education more affordable, U.S. News has produced the Best Colleges for Veterans rankings.
The GEM program links CCAF students to online regionally accredited civilian academic institutions that offer freshman- and sophomore-level general education courses. These courses fulfill the 15 semester hours of general education requirements toward the CCAF associate degree in applied science (AAS).
The Department of Veterans Affairs has made funds available for veteran students who are still awaiting their education benefit claim to be processed. Eligible veterans can receive up to a $3,000 advance, which will be recouped from future benefit payments. If you are a student who applied for one of VA’s education programs and have not yet received your monthly benefit payment for the fall term, you can request a one-time advance payment through the U.S. Department of Veterans Alliance or at your local VA regional office.

Niagara University uses block tuition for undergraduate students studying full time, so all students registered between 12 and 18 credit hours will be billed the block tuition rate. The DOD MOU requires all students to take the yearly tuition, times the number of semesters required to complete the program, divided by the number of credit hours in the program. The amount on the DOD MOU may vary from what would actually be charged. This figure also does not include required fees. The DOD MOU is designed to help military personnel make an informed decision about different schools.
The new Post 9/11 GI Bill© and Yellow Ribbon Program® make Niagara University as affordable as any school in the country.
Military challenge coins are also known as military coins, unit coins, memorial coins, unit challenge coins, or commander's coins.
