Transfer Days @ ESF

You are invited to spend a day exploring how transferring to ESF will open possibilities for you to study in the areas of science, engineering, design, management and policy related to our natural resources and the environment. ESF enrolls half of its students as transfers and Transfer Day @ ESF will give you the opportunity to learn about academic and student life, how your goals and interests can be met by an ESF education, the admissions and financial aid processes, and more.

Landscape Architecture Portfolio Day

Portfolio Day is an opportunity to visit ESF's campus to meet with Landscape Architecture faculty and students, find out what a career in Landscape Architecture is all about, and get some personalized pointers on how to best present your creative work as part of your application to university level design or visual arts programs. It's ok if you do not have a portfolio! Part of the purpose of this program is to see if you might need a portfolio for the college program you might be interested in and then how you can put together the best presentation for your needs. Come for any or all of the sessions.

Transfer Student Information Meetings by Appointment

Students considering transferring to ESF are invited to call the Office of Admissions to arrange an individual meeting. Admissions advisors will speak with you about specific information you will need to prepare to transfer, including transfer credits, class standing, housing and financial aid. You should bring unofficial copies of all college transcripts for transfer credit evaluation.

An individual visit, including a campus tour and meeting with a member of the Admissions staff may be scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition to a discussion of your transfer status, these meetings provide the same information as our group visitation programs. They are not formal interviews, which are not required or considered in the admission process. To schedule an individual visit call the Admissions Office at 315-470-6600.

Campus Tours by Appointment

Tours of the SUNY-ESF Syracuse campus, led by an ESF Student Ambassador, are offered by appointment most weekdays at 9:30 am and 2:00 pm. The tour is approximately one hour in length and includes stops at all the major academic and student life facilities.
