Veterans and Military-Connected Students

​Opportunity awaits

Syracuse University ranks among the nation’s top schools for veterans. The support of military-connected scholars is central to the University’s mission, and includes commitments to affordability, academic success, and a comfortable fit within the student body.

One of the top reasons military-connected students choose Syracuse is academic breadth. You’ll select from among 200 majors and 100 minors within 13 schools and colleges, knowing that no matter what school you choose, you’ll find other students with ties to the Armed Forces.

As a show of appreciation for your service, your application fee has been waived.
