New Graduate Student Information

Congratulations on your admission to graduate study in the School of Education at Syracuse University! Syracuse University is a place where students from diverse backgrounds stretch their limits and learn from scholars of distinction, industry leaders, and community members. Together they explore, discover, and break boundaries as they address real-world issues. And by connecting theory with practice, SU students learn to make their mark by preparing for the world in the world.

If you plan to attend SU and have not yet sent back your SIGNED Intent to Register (ITR) form with the blue envelope, make sure you do it now! This officially matriculates you into SU, and you cannot register for courses until you are matriculated. There is NO tuition deposit fee for School of education graduate students. Note: the ITR is different from the information you may have sent to your individual department saying you will be attending.
