SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher says the partnership provides credit for two years Peace Corps service as part of a Peace Corps Masters International program.
It's the first agreement by the Peace Corps with a state university system.
All 41,000 graduate students at SUNY's 28 graduate schools are eligible to apply.
The areas of study include agriculture, community economic development, education, environment, health, and youth development.
