SUNYIT named Military Friendly School

SUNYIT has been named a "Military Friendly School" for 2013, a designation by G.I. Jobs magazine awarded to only 15% of all colleges and universities in the country.

"As a U.S. Navy veteran, I am especially pleased that SUNYIT goes all out to help our returning vets pursue college degrees," said Wolf Yeigh, president of SUNYIT. "Our staff are committed to meeting the needs of those who served our country so well."

G.I. Jobs has published the Guide to Military Friendly Schools and accompanying website ( since 2009. The 2013 guide includes more than 1,500 schools that represent the top 15 percent of U.S. colleges, universities and trade schools doing the most to educate America’s veterans. These schools offer military students the best services, programs, discounts, scholarships, clubs, networking and staff. The Guide also explains the Post-9/11 GI Bill and offers articles and advice for planning and executing a military education.

"The SUNY system is a recognized leader in assisting military personnel in the transition to civilian life after their service to our country," said Chancellor Zimpher. "As the largest system of public higher education in the country, SUNY offers extensive educational and career opportunities in more than 7,500 degree and certificate programs in every community in New York State. We take great pride in the fact that so many of our returning service men and women turn to SUNY for their education, and thank G.I. Jobs Magazine for this recognition."
