Undergraduate Pre-Arrival

The Slutzker Center works closely with the Admissions Office, the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs, and schools and colleges to assure students can achieve their academic objectives and become part of the Syracuse community.

As part of your arrival to Syracuse, the international student orientation program will cover topics on immigration, adjustment and a variety of other subjects. It will give you time to take care of necessary paperwork and important issues such as purchasing cellphones, opening bank accounts, and shopping for daily necessities before classes begin. More importantly, you will have the advantage of becoming familiar with college life and campus resources to ease the transition to college in the U.S.

Your time at Syracuse will be exciting and exhilarating as you explore your interests, study and learn, make friends, and take advantage of the many opportunities provided on campus to interact with students, scholars and faculty from around the world.

Here is some helpful information to review in advance of your arrival:
