First-year Student

As a First-year Student, Regular Decision is the plan you generally use when you apply in the beginning of your final year in secondary school. Completed applications must be submitted by January 1. Applications are accepted after January 1 if space is available in the program to which you have applied.

If Syracuse University is your first choice, consider applying Early Decision. As an Early Decision candidate, you agree to enroll if admitted to your preferred college at SU. You may apply to other universities with the understanding that you will withdraw these applications if you are admitted to SU. Completed applications must be submitted by November 15.


Transfer Student

If you are an international student with more than 12 hours of college credit, you may be eligible to transfer to SU. Transfer students need to apply by July 1, but are encouraged to apply as early as possible to receive full consideration for admission and housing. Enrollment in some colleges and programs may be limited. Transfer applications will be evaluated by the Admissions Committee as they are received and become complete.


Spring Semester Student

If you wish to apply for admission for the spring semester, which begins in January, please submit your application early in middle to late October.
