Intra-University Transfer Students

Welcome Intra-University Transfer Students

The College of Arts and Sciences welcomes students transferring from other colleges within Syracuse University. The College aims to support students in their academic endeavors and pursuits, and provide a positive experience for intra-university transfer students as they transition to the College. To assist them in the transfer process, students are encouraged to review our academic policies and procedures in regards to degree completion requirements and the transfer credit evaluation process.

Application Process

Students interested in applying for transfer should attend an informational session. Visit the website for dates and times. These sessions are held throughout the semester. For automatic transfer to the College, applicants must be making satisfactory progress and have a current cumulative Syracuse University GPA of at least 2.0. The College will consider applications from, but not guarantee admission to, students with a cumulative GPA below the 2.0 minimum. Such students must submit a letter with their application that explains their previous academic difficulties, the major they are interested in pursuing, and why they believe they will be successful in the College. Students who are approaching junior standing are required to submit a completed declaration of major form with their application. Incomplete applications will not be considered. The application deadline to IUT is the Add Deadline for the specific semester in which a student wishes to enroll.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

When a student is admitted to the College through the Intra-University Transfer process, all previous transfer credit received from other institutions will be re-evaluated by the College of Arts and Sciences. The College of Arts and Sciences awards transfer credit upon the receipt of all official transcripts received from prior institutions and according to the College's Transfer Credit Evaluation guidelines.

Effective Spring 2020 all incoming Intra – University Transfers will be required to submit a WES Evaluation for any international transfer credit and will be subject to the 16 transfer credits post matriculation rule.
