Undergraduates Transferring to SU



Syracuse University has a history of enrolling students from diverse economic and social backgrounds.  Guided by our vision of Scholarship in Action, and the belief that an SU education should be available to any student whose performance and potential are a good fit, the University works closely with families to build a partnership to make SU affordable.  We work hard to make transferring to Syracuse University a seamless transition. 

Jacki Collins is the financial aid transfer coordinator in our office that assists students making their transition to SU.  Jacki can answer your questions regarding financial aid and the application process.  She can help determine an estimate of your financial aid package. Jacki can be reached via email or by telephone to (315) 443-1513.
