Intra-University Transfer (IUT)

Current undergraduates at SU can transfer to the iSchool through the Intra-University Transfer program. You’ll meet with us, learn about your options, and complete a short application.

How to Transfer

If you are already an SU student and would like to transfer to the iSchool, you must attend an information session and a one-on-one advising session, write a 1-page personal statement, and submit your application before the application deadline.

If you’re thinking about applying as an IUT to the iSchool, we encourage you to attend one of our IUT Information Sessions. IUT Information sessions are held about once a month and are required as part of the application process. You will learn about our programs and have an opportunity to meet with key staff, academic advisors, and faculty.

IUT Drop-in Hours
8:30 – 10:00 a.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays
114 Hinds Hall

At your drop-in appointment, iSchool Academic Counselor Shannon Marrero will give you personalized guidance. You can review your transcript, see what courses will transfer to your new major, and determine if you can still graduate on time. Bring a copy of your DegreeWorks transcript to your one-on-one advising session.

Your 1-page personal statement (either a PDF or Word document) should describe why you are interested in being an iSchool student. Please include any relevant and meaningful projects, jobs or internships, and engagements on or off-campus. You will be asked to upload this document in your application.

We strongly suggest that you attend an IUT Information Session and meet with an iSchool Academic Counselor before completing your application. Have a list of all iSchool courses you have completed, their respective grades, and your completed 1-page personal statement ready.

The application will be available this fall. 

Register for and successfully complete our introductory IST 195 course or another iSchool course of your choosing.

IUT Admissions

Admissions to the iSchool through the IUT process is competitive. Students are admitted as space becomes available and are considered on the following criteria:

  • Cumulative GPA
  • Rigor of academic coursework taken at Syracuse University
  • Personal statement

Your application and your official transcript will be reviewed by the iSchool’s IUT Review Committee after grades are posted.

Once decisions are made, you will receive an email from the iSchool’s Office of Student Services and Advising containing your admissions decision. For fall IUT admission, this will happen in late June. For spring IUT admission, this will happen in early January. If admitted, you will meet with your counselor to finalize paperwork and adjust your course schedule if necessary.

If you have questions about the IUT process, please reach out to iSchool Undergraduate Academic Counselor Shannon Marrero or Undergraduate Program Manager Sheila Clifford-Bova.
