A few important things to know:

Academics

Over 200 majors and 100 minors are offered throughout Syracuse University’s nine undergraduate schools and colleges. There is usually more than one path that a student can take to achieve their academic goals.

Applying

Syracuse University uses the Common Application exclusively. Students need to indicate the specific college and/or program to which they wish to be considered for admission. They are able to select up to three separate college/program choices on the application, which can include single programs or dual/combined enrollment programs.

There are several admission plans: Early Decision, Regular Decision, or Spring Admission.  Early Admission is offered for high school juniors.

Domestic students will receive electronic notification only.  International students will receive electronic notification as well as a hard copy in the mail with I-20 information.  Notification timelines:

  • Spring: begins late October
  • Early Decision: begins early December
