174th Airmen

Syracuse University Matches SUNY Tuition Rate for Airmen Using the Recruitment Incentive and Retention Program (RIRP)

174th Airmen using the state’s Recruitment Incentive and Retention Program (RIRP) to pursue an undergraduate degree or certificate at Syracuse University will pay no more than the SUNY tuition rate.

In addition to honoring the RIRP rate, military students are permitted to persist in their studies at the same discounted rate after expending their annual tuition benefit. When annual tuition benefit is reached, the university will honor the member’s tuition support rate until the next benefit cycle. New York State Air National Guard and Naval Militia students pay no more than $278 per credit (or the current SUNY per credit rate) after they expend their annual RIRP allotment.

Eligible admitted students will pay $475 per credit hour under the award. The 174th ATKW Grant represents a 30% tuition discount off of the Syracuse University part-time per credit rate.
