About Our Admissions Process
The deadline to apply for the Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology is January 3.
Current Syracuse University students need to complete the internal application. Contact Bridget Crary (email@example.com) to start the Ph.D. application process.
We do not accept or reject applicants based on test scores. We look at all application materials, not just test scores, in order to make admissions decisions.
Admissions decisions are made by a committee. Individual faculty do not make admissions decisions, and cannot guarantee admission decisions for any applicant.
Identifying how your research interests align with our faculty improves your chances for admission. Applicants whose research interests do not align with faculty looking to recruit students may find it difficult to gain acceptance into the program.
We fund all admitted students. This puts a premium on providing us evidence of your interests and experiences with research and is also why entrance to the iSchool Ph.D. program is selective.
After the application deadline, the doctoral committee, composed of several faculty members and several current students, will go through all applications, conduct interviews (either in person or by phone), and make final decisions.
Once a student is admitted, a faculty advisor will be assigned to the student to guide his or her first year of study in the program.
