Tuition & Aid at the iSchool

Financing Your Education

Students interested in enrolling in our top-ranked degree programs sometimes worry that they won't be able to afford such high-caliber programs. Upon closer look, they often discover that the many funding opportunities available to students at the School of Information Studies make a Syracuse University education a more attractive option than some programs that initially appear to be less expensive.

The School of Information Studies as well as Syracuse University, offers several merit-based scholarships and fellowships to help students cover the cost of tuition, and some programs even provide stipends for books and housing. Students can also apply for need-based assistance through federal loan programs and private lenders. We encourage all students to apply for these award and assistance programs.
