Welcome new VPA students! We are thrilled that you have decided to join us this fall.

From this point forward, the Office of Academic and Career Advising will be your main point of contact for questions regarding advising, academic progress, and any others you might have as you start your academic career at Syracuse University.


The first step in the process is to confirm that you have received and reviewed your transfer credit evaluation. These are sent to your email address. Make sure to request official copies of your transcript be sent to our office email (vpaosa@syr.edu) or mailed directly

If you completed coursework during the spring semester, wait until those grades have been posted before requesting a transcript. Once we have processed your final transcript, you will receive an updated credit evaluation outlining the number of credits that have been accepted.

The second step is registration. A staff member will contact you starting in early June to assist you with course selections.

We look forward to meeting you in August during Syracuse Welcome. Stay in contact by always checking your @syr.edu email address. You can also follow us on Twitter @SU_VPA_OSA and Instagram @VPAOSA.
