Understand Your Benefits
Qualified Veterans may take the MCNY MPA in Emergency and Disaster Management Fully Online degree program as a 100% online program finishing in as little as 12 months or as many as 20 months. The current BAH (Basic Assistance for Housing) is $825 per month for a 100% online program participant.
The Veteran may also choose to register for one onsite course per semester which meets twice over a 14 week period at our New York City campus, and receive a BAH of $4,100+ per month. A Veteran is considered a full-time student at the graduate level by taking 9 credits (3 courses) per semester. This is why many Veterans choose to extend the 45 credit program to 20 months, in order to take fewer courses per semester and extend the BAH, for a more rewarding transition experience.
