At ESF, the environment comes first and science is our middle name!
ESF is home to a dynamic community of collaborators, researchers, teachers, and learners — all coming together to improve our world. Our students are high achieving, engaged, active, and enthusiastic. At ESF, you can pursue your interests and passions and take them even farther through research; field, lab, and studio work; and study abroad and internship opportunities. Our partnership with and proximity to Syracuse University opens up even more opportunities to enhance your academic and student life.
Admission to ESF is competitive, but our admissions process is a personal one. Your interests, abilities, and goals are important to us in providing the best guidance we can as you explore your options. If you’re a high school student interested in ESF, see what we have to offer.
ESF welcomes transfer students in all undergraduate programs of study. Approximately 30% of our students transfer to ESF. If you have completed college-level coursework following high school graduation, you’re considered a transfer student.
At ESF, we value the global perspectives that our international students bring to
the classroom and campus. International students may either apply as first-year or
transfer student as your post-secondary education directs.
I love ESF because it is a small, student-focused school with a big city feel. ESF
is centered around protecting and improving the world around us.
