Deadlines, Requirements, & Fees

Each School of Education graduate program sets their own deadlines and application requirements; review the Admissions page under each program for more information. While many offer rolling admissions on a space-available basis, ensure all of your materials have been received by the deadline to be considered first. All graduate applications to Syracuse University require official transcripts, letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and a resume or CV, but many have additional testing or supplemental requirements. The Graduate Application Fee is $75.
