Intra-University Transfer Students

Syracuse University students interested in an Intra-University transfer into the Whitman School must meet the Intra-University transfer requirements.


  • Students must have completed at least 30 credits at Syracuse University (two academic semesters).
  • Students must have 3 years or 6 semesters remaining on campus to complete the degree requirements. For second-year students interested in applying, you must plan to be on campus for 3 years after acceptance into Whitman.
  • Students must have completed two of the following or their equivalents: MAT 221MAT 284, and ECN 101.
  • Any college-level Calculus course will replace MAT 284 (MAT 285, MAT 295 acceptable). 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.
Students are admitted based on the following criteria: cumulative GPA, the rigor of academic coursework taken at Syracuse University, engagement on and off campus, and an optional professor recommendation letter. Whitman only admits students for the fall semester - admissions decisions are made over the summer. All application requirements must be completed by the last day of the finals of the spring semester, no summer coursework will be considered. Decisions will be made by a committee over the summer and communicated to all applicants.
