Congratulations Class of 2026!

Welcome to Syracuse! Your admission to Syracuse University and the School of Education (SOE) reflects our confidence in your potential to become a positive member of our community and your professional field. The resources and information on this page should answer many of your questions and help you navigate the admissions process.

We’re excited to welcome you to campus for one of the many events to celebrate your acceptance and help you learn about the School of Education. We understand not all students will be able to visit in-person, so we’ve planned several virtual events to mirror the admitted student experience on campus.

Timothy FindlayHello! I’m Tim Findlay, and I am the School of Education’s “expert” when it comes to information on your major and questions you may have. I am here to help you as you finalize your college decision – please don’t hesitate to contact me:

You can email me any questions you have, let me know the best number to reach you at, or arrange for a virtual chat. I am here to talk to you in whatever way is most convenient! If you visit us on campus this spring, you’ll also see me representing the School of Education. See you soon!
