Graduate Transfer Students

  • Congratulations on your admission to Syracuse University! We look forward to meeting you and assisting you as you begin your graduate studies at SU. Whether it is your first time studying in the U.S. or you are transferring from another institution in the U.S. or you are returning to the U.S. after previous study here, the staff of the Slutzker Center for International Services (SCIS) stands ready to assist you with your transition to graduate studies here at Syracuse University. 

    Syracuse University enrolls 6,752 graduate students of which 2,255 are international students. You are joining 1,868 undergraduate international students and an international scholar population (visiting faculty, researchers, post-docs, etc.) of about 300, for a total international population of more than 4,123 individuals from more than 120 countries.   

    The Slutzker Center works closely with the Graduate School and academic departments to assure that graduate students enrolled at SU can achieve their academic objectives and become part of the SU academic community. The SCIS is the place to go on campus if you have questions regarding immigration regulations, passports, visas, insurance, employment, and travel. If you have personal, social, academic, health, housing, or financial problems, the SCIS staff offers advice and counseling.
