Accept Your Offer of Admission

After being officially admitted, you must submit the Admission Acceptance Form (AAF) to formally accept your offer of admission. A tuition deposit is required for students accepting admission to the master of public administration (M.P.A.), master of arts in international relations, master of arts in public diplomacy and global communications, master of science in sustainable organizations and policy, and the Online Executive M.P.A. programs. No tuition deposit is required for the other graduate programs within the Maxwell School.

The tuition deposit will be credited to your student account upon matriculation. Only one deposit is required, even if you have been admitted to a dual degree program.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your program directly or email

International Students

For international students who are admitted on a conditional basis, the Graduate School and the Center for International Services at Syracuse University will communicate with you about how to accept your admission offer and submit the required documentation to obtain your student visa. See the Center for International Services for more information about arriving at Syracuse and living in the community.
