Admissions in NYC
Syracuse University maintains an office in New York City for the convenience of those in the metropolitan area. The University sponsors a wide variety of activities for students and parents. These include programs by individual colleges, financial aid workshops, auditions and portfolio reviews, information sessions, interviews, and workshops for parents.
Lubin House offers a variety of programs, including evening presentations, academic interest programs, and financial aid workshops. It also offers personal interviews and portfolio/audition days for students applying to architecture, art, drama, and music are available in the fall. In addition, we visit high schools and attend college fairs in the metropolitan area.
While none of these programs can take the place of a campus visit, which is really the best way to learn about Syracuse University, they are an alternate way of receiving first-hand information about the University. We invite you to attend any of the following programs. Since space is limited, please make your reservations at least one week in advance.
Personal interviews are available for high school students in the fall of their senior year. An interview is not required, but may strengthen an applicant's candidacy. For the student, it is an opportunity to talk directly with a member of the Admissions Committee, and share goals, interests, and academic information. Interviews are available from mid - September through December and must be scheduled in advance by calling (212) 826-0335.
The Metropolitan New York Office holds required portfolio reviews and auditions for students applying to architecture, art and design, acting, musical theater, and design/technical theater. Transfer students usually must audition or have portfolios reviewed on the Main Campus. However, you should call the Office of Recruitment and Admissions in the College of Visual and Performing Arts at (315) 443-2769 to inquire about specific programs to determine if it is possible to present your portfolio or audition at Lubin House. Please call ahead to make an appointment for portfolio review or audition.
Financial aid workshops provide financial aid information and assist families in completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS Profile).
