Syracuse University participates in all veterans’ education programs and is a Yellow Ribbon school. With Yellow Ribbon, Post 9/11 GI Bill students can receive additional funding so that required tuition and fees are covered.
Most 100% Yellow Ribbon-eligible veterans are able to complete their education at Syracuse without any out-of-pocket costs for tuition or fees. If you do not have enough remaining eligibility to complete your degree or need additional grant options for your dependents, Syracuse has financial aid available to help you. View the tuition reference guide.
Veterans eligible for the 100% Yellow Ribbon Program or Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment Benefits also receive an annual $3,000 grant from Syracuse University to apply toward on-campus housing.
Syracuse University has long provided educational opportunities for veterans, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because of the perspective and experience service members bring to campus.
