Transfer Student Programs

Welcome to Syracuse University! Whether you are a transfer student from another four-year institution or a community college, SU is happy to be your new home! The Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs is committed to providing you the tools and support to achieve your goals at SU. Because we know that the transfer experience can have its unique challenges, we have a variety of programs and resources specific to you.

Transfer Transition Pre-Orientation Program

With the Transfer Transition Pre-Orientation Program, you will have the opportunity to connect with other new transfer students when you arrive in August. Transfer Transitions is a two-day program designed to help new transfer students find the answers to their questions and prepare for their academic career at SU, prior to starting Syracuse Welcome, university-wide orientation.

Transfer Transitions Leaders

The Transfer Transitions Leaders (TTLs) are current students who have transferred to Syracuse University. They serve as mentors to new transfer students and are available to answer questions and help you make connections on campus. In addition, TTLs host monthly social events for all new transfer students.

Transfer Newsletters

There are a variety of events and opportunities available around SU’s campus. To keep you informed, the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs compiles a monthly e-newsletter highlighting various campus activities and monthly transfer events.
