The Quad

If you are a current Syracuse University student, or if you recently completed a graduate program at SU, you may qualify for the internal admission process.

The internal admission form is used to either:

  • Pursue a concurrent degree: if you are looking to complete an additional degree while working on your current degree
  • Pursue a consecutive degree: if you are working on a degree and wish to pursue another after completion of your current degree or if you completed a graduate program within the past 12 months and would like to apply to another program

If you are either a current College of Visual and Performing Arts student or are applying for internal admission to an SU:VPA program, please follow the instructions below.

Current SU:VPA students:

  1. Students in SU:VPA who are adding a second degree, either within SU:VPA or in another college, must receive permission for the concurrent degree from their advisor (either by e-mail or on paper) and submit, along with internal admission form, to the SU:VPA Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
  2. Based on that permission, the graduate admissions coordinator will sign off on the form for "current department."
  3. Students adding a second program in SU:VPA must contact the new program advisor for permission to enroll, either by e-mail or on paper. That should be submitted to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies. The graduate admissions coordinator will then sign off on the form for "new department" and will send the form to Enrollment Management Processing for processing.
  4. Students adding a second program outside of SU:VPA will take the form, after "current department" signature is obtained, to their new department. Students should follow their new department's process for obtaining signatures and submitting the form for processing.

Current non-SU:VPA students:

  1. Students who are currently non-SU:VPA students seeking to add an SU:VPA program must fill out the left hand column (#1-7) on the internal admission form.
  2. Students should then obtain their "current department" signature from their current school or college.
  3. Students should then bring the form to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies (or send the form by mail to 222 Smith Hall). The office will contact the program for application review, then submit the form to Enrollment Management once the necessary approvals have been obtained.
