About Us

As you enter this period of tremendous change and prepare to join our community, the Office of First-Year and Transfer Programs (FYTP) will be with you every step of the way. FYTP is your host for Syracuse Welcome, our award-winning orientation program for new students. It's devoted to helping you make a successful and fulfilling transition to SU. From the day you are accepted (as a first-year or transfer student) throughout your SU career, FYTP is your partner in academic excellence, getting to know our environments, and starting your experience with confidence.

FYTP provides support in a variety of areas, including networking and social programming, and guidance for getting through those sometimes challenging first few months on campus. Whether you live on campus or off, whether you're a first-year or transfer student, FYTP is committed to eliminating the barriers between you and an excellent start to your life at SU. Ask the friendly and knowledgeable FYTP staff any question; they'll point you in the right direction every time!
