Accepting Admission

Accepting Admission


The most important contact you will have as an SU graduate student will be with your academic unit. However, during the application stage, you'll need to communicate directly with the Office of Enrollment Management regarding two items:

  • The Intent to Register Form
  • Tuition Deposit (some programs only)

Intent to Register Form

This form was included with your official letter of admission. You must complete and return it to formally accept the offer of admission. Please note that the permanent address appearing on the Intent to Register form will be used until you arrive on campus. Please update that address on the form before returning it, if necessary. Send completed forms to:

Changing Your Semester of Enrollment

Even if you do not plan to enroll at Syracuse University in the semester for which you have been admitted, it is still important for you to return the Intent to Register form and indicate the term in which you do wish to enroll. If your academic unit approves this change, your admission record will be changed accordingly and you will be notified.

Tuition Deposit

The following graduate programs at SU require that new students submit a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500 with the Intent to Register form. This will secure your place in the entering class. Response deadline information differs for each program below.

Your offer of admission will become void if the tuition deposit has not been received by the deadlines indicated. Payment should be in the form of a check or money order payable to Syracuse University. International students may check here for further payment information. When you enroll for the semester for which you have been admitted your deposit will be credited to your Bursar account as an advance tuition payment. The deposit is not refunded if you do not enroll.
