For more than 100 years, University College of Syracuse University has made it possible for working adults and other part-time students to earn a Syracuse University degree.

University College of Syracuse University has made it possible for working adults and other part-time students to earn a Syracuse University degree.

In June, Syracuse University reaffirmed its commitment to adult and lifelong learners, veterans and military-connected students
through a series of initiatives designed to expand opportunity and enhance affordability for those who aspire to earn a Syracuse University undergraduate degree through part-time study at University College.

“Part-time learners represent the largest population of students enrolled in higher education today,” says Chancellor Kent Syverud. “Making part-time study at Syracuse University more affordable and accessible is both a natural continuation of the University’s history of supporting non-traditional students, and an appropriate response to the changing needs and expectations of those who could most benefit from a Syracuse University education.”

The cost for part-time undergraduate study at Syracuse University—including all part-time residential and online undergraduate degree programs—has been reduced by 18 percent, from $846 per credit hour to $695 per credit hour. This adjustment to part-time undergraduate tuition will effectively reduce the total tuition cost of earning a bachelor’s degree from University College, on average, by $18,000.

Syracuse University has also aligned the undergraduate part-time tuition rate charged to active duty military members enrolled in online undergraduate programs to be equivalent with the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) reimbursement. University College offers part-time online undergraduate study to members of the New York State National Guard and reservists stationed in New York State at a cost equivalent to the Recruitment Incentive and Retention Program (RIRP) tuition reimbursement rate. Syracuse University’s part-time undergraduate programs include an online associate degree in liberal arts and bachelor’s degrees in liberal studies, creative leadership, knowledge management and cybersecurity administration.
