Updated | Hannah Heine
Imagine you’re mid-semester at your respective university or college and are called to active military service. Good News! With their deployment/redeployment policy, Syracuse tries their hardest to help you out. You heard that right. Syracuse University is no stranger to veteran and active duty students and their changing lifestyles.

Syracuse University is an urban campus located in central New York with a current enrollment of 21,789 students. 764 of those students have some type of military connection. This co-ed, private institution has a price tag of $46,755 for a full-time undergraduate student (+ housing, meals, expenses). But have no fear, veterans and those of you on active duty, they have loads of options for you.
Ranked #61 in the National Universities list of US News & World Report rankings, Syracuse is one university that is closely tied to one specific color: orange. Known as the Orange in NCAA Division I competition, Syracuse also has a reputation for being a student-focused global research institution.
Syracuse offers something for everyone. Joe Biden, class of 1968 and U.S. Vice President, and Vanessa Williams, class of 1985 and the first African-American crowned Miss America, both studied at Syracuse. So did Jim Brown, Carmelo Anthony, Bob Costas, Aaron Sorkin and Megyn Kelly.
“The IVMF is the first interdisciplinary national institute in higher education focused on the social, economic, education and policy issues impacting veterans and their families post-service.
Through our focus on veteran-facing programming, research and policy, employment and employer support, and community engagement, the institute provides in-depth analysis of the challenges facing the veteran community, captures best practices and serves as a forum to facilitate new partnerships and strong relationships between the individuals and organizations committed to making a difference for veterans and military families.”
