Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies is excited to announce a new partnership with SUNY Morrisville that will allow more students to enroll in masters’ degree programs at the iSchool.

Under this agreement, SUNY Morrisville’s undergraduate students will have more opportunities to enter residential graduate degree programs at the iSchool to earn masters’ degrees in applied data science, information systems, and library and information science programs. 

“This provides a smooth pathway for SUNY Morrisville students to enter the exciting fields of data science, librarianship and information sciences,” said Zachary Schuster, the iSchool’s director of admissions and recruitment. 

Schuster previously worked for SUNY Morrisville as an admissions counselor from 2008 to 2012. 

“I am really excited to offer this opportunity to their graduates,” Schuster said. “Syracuse University is in close proximity to SUNY Morrisville, making our programs attractive and convenient. Students will enter in-demand career areas with outstanding placement and salary outcomes.”

As an added incentive, the iSchool will waive application fees for students applying from SUNY Morrisville. Students who are selected will receive a guaranteed scholarship ranging from 25% to 50% of tuition charges, with the possibility of further consideration for additional scholarships on a case-by-case basis.

Tony Contento, dean for the School of Agriculture, Business and Technology at SUNY Morrisville, says the partnership “is a testament to our shared vision of nurturing excellence in Information Science.”

“We’re both driven by a passion for cutting-edge education and equipping students with the skills they need to thrive in the digital age,” Contento said. “We’re delighted to offer SUNY Morrisville’s Computer and Information Science students a seamless path to graduate studies in these spectacular programs at SU, and we anticipate fruitful collaborations as we work together to shape the future of technology education.”

SUNY Morrisville is a public college with two locations in New York, one in Morrisville and one in Norwich. It is part of the State University of New York system.
