If you are a high school senior, you can apply directly through the Common Application. Choose Syracuse University, College of Arts and Sciences and then you will see Citizenship and Civic Engagement. You will be required to answer an additional essay question and will be prompted directly through the Common Application. You will find out about your acceptance to the CCE Program directly through the general Syracuse University application process.  If you have any additional questions about this do not hesitate to contact us directly through email ( or phone (315.443.1602).
