Syracuse University – Make it Your Mission

Syracuse University has a long history of support for those who serve in our country’s armed forces. Your contributions to our safety and security are valued, and we are honored to provide meaningful assistance as you pursue your educational goals.

When you enroll in a part-time undergraduate degree program through the College of Professional Studies, your military tuition assistance (TA) covers 100 percent of tuition. This applies to active duty service members, US Reserve Component Military and National Guard members.

New York State Army Guard, Air National Guard, and Naval Militia using the state’s Recruitment Incentive and Retention Program (RIRP) to attend college will pay no more than the SUNY tuition rate for online and on campus undergraduate degrees.

Veteran and military admissions virtual information sessions are available the first Monday of every month.

Military Experience, Academic Success

Finish your degree faster by earning college credit for your military experience and occupation. Turn your professional military education (PME) and training into college credit with Syracuse University’s part-time online undergraduate degree programs for military. We award college credits to members of the military based on Joint Service Transcripts (JST) and/or Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) records.

Hundreds of occupations across each branch of the armed forces have already been evaluated for credit toward a Syracuse University online degree.
