Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Keuka College reached out to survivors and family members of those killed in the attacks by establishing the 911 Service Scholarship. Now, Keuka is inviting those who served on active duty in the military on or after Sept. 11, 2001 to take part in the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act of 2008. The application for benefits is available on the Veteran’s Administration Web site.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides for payments to institutions for veterans’ tuition and fees, a monthly housing allowance, and an annual stipend for books and supplies.
The Keuka experiential learning model has a close relationship to the military’s learning model–both rely on a hands-on, applied learning approach.
At Keuka, every student undertakes a Field Period every year. Students go out into the world for 140 hours of hands-on experience, putting into practice what they learned in the classroom.
By the time they graduate, they have significant, real-world experience that impresses employers and graduate schools. And here’s the proof: over the past five years, 98 percent of graduates surveyed started their careers or enrolled in graduate school within 6 to 9 months of graduation.
You may use your GI benefits for any program offered at Keuka College–our traditional undergraduate program, our Accelerated Studies for Adults Program (ASAP), or our on-campus graduate programs.
If you have few or no college-level credits, you may be interested in learning more about the 33 majors taught at our Keuka Park campus.
If you’ve completed some college-level coursework and are looking to complete your bachelor’s degree–or if you’ve earned your bachelor’s degree and would like to pursue a master’s degree–we have a variety of programs to meet your needs.
Our Accelerated Studies for Adults Program features four-hour, undergraduate and graduate classes one night each week at locations throughout New York state, and our on-campus graduate programs offer full- and part-time study options.
