Getting Admitted: What is the criteria for successful admission into Falk majors at Syracuse University?
Our main admissions webpages offer the answers to all questions concerning admission criteria for Falk College. We always encourage students to participate in career related volunteer activities and shadowing opportunities while in high school. These experiences enable you to learn more about your intended major and career path.
Choosing a Major: I’m not sure what major I want to study at Syracuse University. Is this a problem?
At Falk College you have the ability to explore educational opportunities by entering as an undeclared student. We have an expert student services staff that will help you choose the right major for you. Most majors at SU have over 50% of their curriculum housed in the College of Arts & Sciences. Students that are still exploring will begin with courses in natural and social science, humanities, math and English.
Changing Majors: What if I decide to change my major after I get to Syracuse?
It is important to note that many students change their major and career aspirations while in college. This is very normal! If that major is housed in another college at Syracuse University, our counselors will advise you of the guidelines for intra-university transfers. Most majors are easy to transfer into. It is important to note that there are a handful of majors at Syracuse University that are more difficult to transfer into due to space considerations. All intra university majors have their entry criteria available on the individual department web pages.
