College of Professional Studies Announces Degree Completion Partnership With the United States Army Warrant Officer Career College
Syracuse University continues to demonstrate its national leadership role as the best university for veterans and military-connected students with a first-of-its-kind degree completion partnership with the United States Army Warrant Officer Career College (USAWOCC).
Under the first-of-its-kind agreement, Syracuse University will award 51 course credits to warrant officer candidates and senior warrant officers completing programs of instruction at the USAWOCC. The agreement is designed to assist participating soldiers in obtaining one or more of the following undergraduate degrees through the College of Professional Studies including business management, creative leadership, knowledge management and policy studies.
“This partnership agreement dramatically expands access to Syracuse University for active duty, guard and reserve warrant officers who have or will complete Warrant Officer Career College,” says Michael Frasciello, dean of the College of Professional Studies. “Our commitment to providing flexible and progressive pathways for military-connected students immediately extends to the approximately 28,000 Warrant Officers serving in the United States Army.”
Syracuse University’s enduring commitment to veteran and military-connected students dates back more than 100 years. As one of the best private schools in the country for military-connected students, the University offers online and residential part-time undergraduate study to active-duty military, guard and reservists earning the distinction of being the Best Place for Veterans.
Army warrant officers, who are admitted to one of the transfer-eligible online bachelor’s programs, can use their tuition assistance (TA) benefits to cover 100% of their tuition. Consistent with its commitment to enhancing affordability, Syracuse University honors the Department of Defense TA rate of $250 per credit hour for US military members who aspire to earn an undergraduate degree.
“Active duty military, guard and reservists are life-long learners—members of the largest population of students enrolled in higher education today. Making 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,” says Frasciello.
Active military, guard and reserve members interested in more information about enrollment opportunities at Syracuse University may contact the College of Professional Studies admissions team at 315.443.9378 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
