Intra-University Transfer Students

Welcome Intra-University Transfer Students

The College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) welcomes students transferring from other colleges within Syracuse University. We aim to support students in their academic endeavors and pursuits, and provide a positive experience for Intra-University Transfer students as they transition to A&S. To assist 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

The application deadline to IUT is the Add Deadline for the specific semester in which a student wishes to enroll. Prior planning is always helpful, so don’t wait until the last minute to submit your application.


  • Applicants must have a current cumulative Syracuse University GPA of at least 2.0.
  • A&S 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 A&S.
  • Students are required to submit a completed declaration of major form with their application, unless they are undecided (prior to completion on 50 credits. After a student has completed 50 credits, a major declaration is required.)
  • 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 A&S through the Intra-University Transfer process, all previous transfer credit received from other institutions will be re-evaluated by the college. A&S 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.
