Checklist for AdmittedStudents

Before arriving on campus, please review ReadySet, Syracuse University’s online guide to preparing for your arrival. 

Fall 2018 Arrival

The official start of Syracuse Welcome 2018, new student orientation, is Thursday, August 23. Classes begin on Monday, August 27. During the summer you will want to review ReadySet and the Syracuse Welcome Guide. The ReadySet website will be updated for fall 2018 as of May 1, 2018. New students are able to move-in on Tuesday, August 21; Wednesday, August 22; or Thursday, August 23 based on their assigned arrival pass. New students will need to register for orientation and rank their move-in/arrival time preferences using the online Orientation Registration Form between June 1 and July 15. After receiving their housing assignment in mid-July, new students will be assigned and emailed their arrival pass based on their preferences from the Orientation Registration Form.

Several pre-orientation programs for new students will also be available. Students who participate will have the opportunity to move in before Tuesday, August 21 and connect with a small group of students before Syracuse Welcome begins. Each program engages students around a topic of shared interest; some include civic engagement, outdoor adventure, and campus exploration.

Make your advance tuition payment of $500

This payment tells us that you plan to attend Syracuse University. Please make this and the advance housing payment together, utilizing the payment options available on the Admission Acceptance Form. A record of your payments will be kept to show you have paid part of your first semester.

This advance tuition payment is not required of admitted students who are dependents of Syracuse employees. Higher Education Opportunity Program students admitted to Syracuse do not have to pay the advance tuition or advance housing payment.

International Students:

If you cannot get funds for these payments because currency is restricted in your country, you must still send all the forms. Please send a letter explaining why your payment is delayed. If you are being sponsored by a scholarship agency or by government funds, you should also send a copy of your letter of sponsorship and instructions on how bills are to be paid.


3.

Make your advance housing payment of $450

This payment reserves a room for you and can be returned if you request a refund before June 1 (fall applicants) or January 1 (spring applicants). Please make this and the advance tuition payment together, utilizing the payment options available on the Admission Acceptance Form. A record of your payments will be kept to show you have paid part of your first semester.

Once your payment is processed, you will receive an e-mail from the Syracuse Housing Office to your syr.edu email account confirming your access to the online Housing and Meal Plan application.

Higher Education Opportunity Program students admitted to Syracuse do not have to pay the advance tuition payment and advance housing payment.
