Special Petitions: Programs not Affiliated with SU Abroad
Transfer credit will not be granted for courses that Syracuse University undergraduate students take (outside of SU Abroad programs and through a special petitioning process) while on a leave of absence to study abroad. If an SU undergraduate student wishes to go abroad on a non-affiliated program, a vetting process exists for non-affiliated programs. The student should begin their petition process at least one year prior to their desired abroad program begins.
We make admissions decisions based on a full review of the application, including the academic recommendation, the personal statement, and any disciplinary sanctions. To be eligible for SU Abroad admission, students must not be on disciplinary probation (or campus equivalent) during their time abroad and/or have any outstanding judicial sanctions. Once admitted to SU Abroad, you must remain a student in good standing (academic, financial, and judicial) to participate in our programs.
