Information for International Students

International students may apply for entry as first-year students if they will be enrolling immediately following the completion of secondary school or as a transfer student if they have previously completed college or university level coursework after graduation from secondary school.

In addition to submitting the application forms and credentials required of all applicants, international students will need to submit additional documentation of their proficiency in the English language, their ability to meet all of the financial obligations which will be incurred while attending the College for the duration of the academic program and official academic records in English, or translation of these records by a SUNY-ESF approved agency.

  • Note to International Students using The Common Application: The application fee may be submitted online by credit card or e-check or by mailing a check in the amount of $50.00 (US Dollars) directly to the Office of Undergraduate admissions, SUNY-ESF, 1 Forestry Drive, Syracuse, NY 13210. Applications will not be processed until the application fee is paid or proof of eligibility for a fee waiver is received.

Once the application is received, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will send additional information on how to submit all of the documents required of International students for consideration by the Admissions Committee.
