Admissions & Finances
We are pleased that you are interested in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University for your graduate study.
Applications to any of Maxwell's master's and doctoral programs are submitted to the Graduate School—the college of record for all graduate students at Syracuse University. When you are ready to apply, visit the Graduate School's How to Apply page.
Each department at the Maxwell School reviews applications individually and then conveys its admission recommendations to the Office of Enrollment Management on behalf of the Graduate School. (For information on the specific admissions requirements of individual Maxwell departments, please visit their websites; follow the "Departments & Programs" heading above.) Official offers of admission come from the dean of the Graduate School.
An application is not considered complete until all documents, including
required test scores, have been received by the University. (The
testing agency will send test scores directly to the University.) To
verify whether all materials have been received, you may contact either the degree program to which you are applying or the Office of Graduate Enrollment Management at 315-443-4492 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students who wish to
major in a Maxwell School discipline matriculate in
SU's College of Arts and Sciences. Visit their
website for information about admission.
To merit prime consideration for admission and award decisions, all application documents, including test scores, must be received by the Office of Enrollment Management Center by the admissions deadline for the specific program to which you are applying.
We look forward to hearing from you and to receiving your completed application package.
