Transferring to Newhouse

Transferring to Newhouse from outside Syracuse University

Every year, the Newhouse School welcomes up to 30 transfer students from other colleges and universities. Admissions decisions for external transfer students are made by the SU Office of Admissions using the Common Application. If you wish to transfer to Newhouse for the fall semester, we encourage you to submit your application to Admissions by Jan. 1 in order to receive full consideration for admission and financial aid. Applications will continue to review completed transfer applications after Jan. 1 on a space-available basis. Enrollment in some programs may be limited and transfers are only accepted in the spring if space is available.

Transferring to Newhouse from another  SU school or college (Intra-University Transfer)

Students may apply to transfer into Newhouse from other Syracuse University Colleges. Please refer to Public Communication intra-university transfer application rules.

Intra-University Transfer Applications must be filled out and turned in to the Undergraduate Advising and Records Office (316 Newhouse 3) by May 1 for fall semester and Dec. 15 for spring semester.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to attend an Intra-University Transfer Information Session before applying. Several sessions are offered each semester and provide an overview of the application process, requirements for admission and graduation from Newhouse.

Note: Photography and graphic design majors may require a minimum of five semesters on main campus.

Transferring course credits

The Newhouse School accepts a maximum of 12 transfer credits in communications. These credits must be judged applicable to your major and meet general University criteria for transfer credits.
