About Our Partners

At Syracuse University’s Office of Pre-College Programs, we believe that all students should be given a chance to pursue a college degree. Therefore, part of the ongoing goal of the Office of Pre-College Programs is to provide tuition assistance to help high-need, high-achieving, low-income, first-generation and underrepresented students attend our pre-college programs.

We understand the hardships that many students and their families are facing, so we do whatever is within our means to support our students – both financially and academically.

Through our partnerships in 2016-2020, we welcomed over 850 students to our pre-college programs at no cost to the student. We have partnered with more than 30 community-based organizations nationwide to provide financial support to high school students so they can enroll in our programs.
