Berkeley College is ranked as a best college for military and veteran students by several organizations, including U.S. News & World Report, Military Times, U.S. Veterans Magazine, and Military Advanced Education. As of fall 2018, more than 450 military and veterans students are enrolled. The Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs provides support to its student-veterans through six on-site veterans resource centers (VRCs) in New Jersey and New York, as well as through an Online VRC. Berkeley College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program under the G.I. Bill, and supports service members and their families across all branches of the military and overseas.

 

Berkeley College students and staff participate in the Veterans History Project sponsored by the Library of Congress. In 2000, the United States Congress established the Veterans History Project in order to collect, preserve and archive personal accounts of American service members so that future generations will be able to hear directly from the veterans and better understand the realities of war.
