  2. Pay your Advance Tuition Deposit via Myslice

Instructions for the matriculation process will be included in your formal admission packet from the Syracuse University Graduate Enrollment Management Center (International Students see below), which you should receive via email within a few weeks of receiving your admission email from the School of Architecture.

Review the checklists carefully for all of your next steps. If you have not received your formal admission email within a couple weeks, email us at

International Students

  • English Proficiency*
  • Academic Credentials
  • Funding requirements

Please see the Graduate admissions webpage for additional details: Note: it takes approximately 1-2 weeks to clear each condition and for the Sluzker Center to process your I-20 documents and receive your Intent to Matriculate and deposit emails. Please plan accordingly.

Syracuse University’s Graduate Enrollment Management Center will send out your official I-20 and emails, as referenced above, when all of these requires are met.

*Students who were conditionally admitted based upon English proficiency will receive information from the English Language Institute (ELI) regarding your I-20 documentation and other admissions information. You will not receive a formal admissions packet and official matriculation to Syracuse Architecture until upon completion of the ELI program.
