We’re uniquely equipped to provide an education to veterans and those currently serving in the military. Syracuse University is proud to have a tradition of service, and the iSchool continues that tradition by offering veterans cutting-edge programs.
Apply your experience and gain the skills you need to excel.
As a member of the military, you’ve seen firsthand the power of data, information, and technology. We combine the technical training you need take that expertise to the next level, with a focus on leadership, business, and management. This combination positions you to take high-level roles in or out of the services after graduation, and opens doors to the entire Syracuse University network.
Our flexible programs allow you to complete your studies part-time, full-time, or anywhere in between, as long as the program is completed within seven years. And our master’s and certificate programs are offered online or on-campus.
Syracuse University is a member of the Yellow Ribbon Program. Application fees are waived for all veterans.
The iSchool has its own dedicated Employer Relations and Career Services Team to help prepare you for the next step of your career and connect you with new, full-time employment opportunities. The iSchool strongly believes that connecting real-world experience to coursework is integral to success, so much so that we require our students gain credit through jobs and internships.
If you’re a veteran applying to iSchool programs with an extensive military or professional background, you may have your previous experience and coursework evaluated in order to receive course credits or internship waivers, allowing you to only focus on the curriculum you need to advance and succeed.
The iSchool, in combination with the College of Engineering and Computer Science, is ranked #11 for Online Computer Information Technology Programs for Veterans and #19 in Best Online Graduate Information Technology Programs.
