Military - Getting Started

How Do I Get Started?



Utica College strives to make the application process for veterans, active service members, and dependents as smooth as possible. If you have any questions at any point, don’t hesitate to call (866) 295-3106 to speak to a Program Manager.

Your first step is to apply for admission to the program of your choice. Utica College offers a number of career-oriented online degree programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate levels, as well as certificate programs. Note that requirements for each program may vary.

You will also have to arrange for official transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universities to be sent to Utica College. See our application checklist to get organized.

The process for obtaining benefits provided by the G.I. Bill varies according to applicants’ status as a veteran, returning veteran, or a dependent. You will generally need to submit the appropriate online application to the VA along with a discharge document (typically your DD214). There is detailed information and resources on the VA website.
