Offered throughout the year

Syracuse Campus

If you are unable to attend a Syracuse campus Open House or Transfer Day @ ESF, you can call to schedule an individual visit, including a campus tour, and meeting with a member of the Admissions staff, Monday through Friday. To schedule an individual visit call the Admissions Office at 315-470-6600. These meetings provide the same information as our formal programs and take approximately 2 hours. They are not formal interviews, which are not required or considered in the admission process.

The Admissions Office, located at the Syracuse campus, reviews applications for both the bachelor degrees (Syracuse campus) and associate degrees (Ranger School campus). Questions about your individual qualifications for admission and transfer credit evaluations for either bachelor degrees or associate degrees should be directed to the Admissions Office. If you have not requested a transfer credit evaluation prior to your visit, you should bring unofficial copies of grade reports or transcripts for all colleges attended to your appointment.

The Ranger School Campus

The faculty and staff of the Ranger School welcome visitors to the Wanakena campus in the Central Adirondack Mountains. Arrangements to spend a morning or afternoon, including weekends, meeting with Ranger School personnel to learn more about academic and student life as well as an opportunity to explore the 2,800 acre Dubar Forest campus may be made by calling 315-848-2566. Ranger School staff can answer general questions about admission to the associate degree programs.
