Transfer Students

If you're thinking about transferring to Syracuse University, you have plenty of company. Hundreds of transfer students arrive on campus every year, ready to take advantage of all Syracuse has to offer.

You’re considered a transfer student if you've enrolled in a degree program at another college or university, and completed at least 12 credit hours. If you have taken college classes without enrolling in a degree program, or will have less than 12 credits when you plan to enroll, you should apply as a first-year student.

We have the resources and services ready to make you feel at home, no matter when you join the Syracuse family. Our dedicated transfer student team is here to help. Contact us at or call 315.443.3611 with any questions.
