Veterans & Military

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 to 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.

Career Resources


Scholarships and Other Resources

The Syracuse University Veterans and Military Scholarship for the School of Information Studies is a tuition scholarship for veterans and those currently serving in the military. Syracuse iSchool faculty and staff will choose the scholarship recipient.

The scholarship offers up to 50% tuition scholarship toward any campus-based Syracuse University iSchool master’s program.

In 2009, the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University (iSchool) and the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence (CoE) (Formerly Signal Center School of Information Technology – SIT) at Fort Gordon formally established an agreement to enable qualified United States Army Cyber/Signal Center graduates to complete master’s degrees at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University.

Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies (iSchool) is the original academic partner with the National Defense University’s College of Information and Cyberspace (CIC) – formerly the Information Resources Management College or iCollege.

The Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) is the first national center in higher education focused on the social, economic, education, and policy issues impacting veterans and their families post-service.

The IVMF develops impactful programming, cultivates actionable research, conducts policy analysis and provides technical assistance positioned to address the social, economic and public policy challenges facing the veterans’ community. With a growing number of programs designed to educate, train, and mentor veterans and families, the IVMF is a national leader in veteran educational support, and is located right on the Syracuse University campus.

Onward to Opportunity (O2O) — formerly known as the Veterans Career Transition Program (VCTP) — is a no-cost industry-focused and validated career skills program that connects transitioning service members and active duty military spouses to high-demand careers in Customer Excellence, Information Technology, and Business Management. Training is designed to meet the needs of private sector partners to help bridge the gap between the military-connect population and skills the employers are seeking.

The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs (OVMA) serves as the university’s single point of entry for all veteran and military-related programs and initiatives.  Committed to being the “Best Place for Veterans,” OVMA assists university stakeholders to support and empower military-connected students and veteran employees of Syracuse University.
