Intra-University Transfer Students

Syracuse University students interested in an intra-University transfer into the Whitman School must meet the intra-University transfer requirements. To be considered eligible for transfer, students must have completed at least 30 credits at Syracuse University (two academic semesters), including two of the following or their equivalents: MAT 221, MAT 284, and ECN 101.

Students are admitted as space becomes available and considered based on the following criteria: cumulative GPA, rigor of academic coursework taken at Syracuse University, engagement on and off campus and an optional professor recommendation. Whitman only admits students for the fall semester - admissions decisions are made over the summer.

Students interested in transferring are required to attend an Information Session and meet with an advisor in the Whitman School's Undergraduate Office. All application requirements must be completed by the last day of the finals of their first-year, no summer coursework will be considered. Decisions will be made by a committee over the summer and communicated to all applicants.


Any college level Calculus course will replace MAT 284. If you have AP credit for Calculus, it will replace MAT 284.

MAT 221 is a substitute for our required course MAS 261. If you have AP credit for statistics, it will replace MAT 221.

MAT 121 and MAT 122 together will substitute for MAS 261 or MAT 221.

Although courses transferred from other colleges and universities are not included in the Syracuse University average, grades earned at other institutions in the required math and economics courses may be considered.

Information about the application process will be posted in the spring. If you have any questions, please contact
