    Academic Credentials

    One (1) copy of records of all previous postsecondary education.
    Contact the Registrar’s Office of each higher educational institution that you attended and have one copy of your transcript(s) sent to the Syracuse University Enrollment Management Processing Center. Address and submission instructions are below.

    You do not need to send transcripts from secondary schools as part of this application.

    We can consider your application with unofficial transcripts, but we recommend that you send official transcripts. If you choose to submit an unofficial transcript, all offers of admission from Syracuse University are conditional pending receipt of official academic credentials showing that a U.S. bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) has been conferred upon you.

    Failure to submit official degree-bearing credentials may result in revocation of an offer of admission, or dismissal from the graduate program if admission has already been granted.

    Exam Scores

    GRE requirements are noted on the Program Requirements List.
    The GRE requirement is waived for current students applying through the Syracuse University College of Engineering & Computer Science BS/MS program or the Syracuse University-LeMoyne College program,

    It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that exam scores reach Syracuse by any applicable deadlines. All scores for TOEFL, GRE, and GMAT are reported to a single location at Syracuse University. The institution code for Syracuse University is 2823 (no department code needed). This number should be used when requesting the ETS (Educational Testing Service) to send your scores electronically to Syracuse University. It is not necessary to request that scores be reported to more than one department.

    Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
