Tuition Deposit

The following graduate programs require that new students submit a non-refundable tuition deposit of $500 with the Intent to Register form. This will secure your place in the entering class. See the list below to find out what programs require a tuition deposit:

More details on submitting your tuition deposit

Note: Your offer of admission will become void if the tuition deposit has not been received by the deadlines indicated. Payment should be in the form of a check or money order payable to Syracuse University. International students may check here for further payment information. When you enroll for the semester for which you have been admitted your deposit will be credited to your Bursar account as an advance tuition payment. The deposit is not refunded if you do not enroll.

Changing Your Semester of Enrollment

If you do not plan to enroll at Syracuse University in the semester for which you have been admitted, you must contact your department to defer your admission.  If approved, your admission record will be updated accordingly.
