First things first, you must accept your admission and confirm your intent to enroll by matriculating to Syracuse University.

The matriculation deadline is April 15, 2024, unless otherwise stated on your original admission letter.

In order to matriculate, all students must:

  • Submit your Admission Acceptance Form
    Log in to your application status portal using the following link: Syracuse University Application Status Portal. Locate and complete the Admission Acceptance Form provided within the portal. This form signifies your intent to accept the admission offer.
  • Pay your Enrollment Deposit Fee
    In the same application status portal, find the option to submit the $500 Graduate Tuition Deposit. This deposit may be required to secure your place in the program and is non-refundable.

Once your Admission Acceptance Form and Graduate Deposit have been completed and submitted, you will be matriculated.

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

International Students

In order to receive your visa you must complete additional requirements. These include:

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

Request your Syracuse University Identification (SU I.D.) Card

Electronically submit your own picture for your SU I.D. Card on the ID Card Services webpage.

Your SU I.D. Card will serve as your official Syracuse University identification and will provide you access to residence halls, dining centers, computer labs, library privileges, print and copy centers and the Syracuse University Bookstore.

Once your SU I.D. is created, you can pick it up on campus at Syracuse University Card Services in 111 Waverly Avenue, Suite 111.
