Transfer Course Selection & Registration

School of Architecture

Incoming architecture transfer students will be emailed an individualized Transfer Student Information Packet in July.  Should you feel entitled to transfer credit in core architecture requirements, you will have the opportunity to present supportive evidence, such as course syllabi, notes, course work etc. to representatives of the faculty who teach in those areas during the first week of classes.  Please bring evidence of accomplishment, such as course syllabi, class notes or examples of work. View the course descriptions to help you compare and match the course content of the courses you feel should transfer. 

We will register you for your core courses. BArch transfer students will NOT have access to the First Term Enrollment Selections form designed for freshman students. After your transfer credit evaluations are completed you will be able to adjust your schedule accordingly.  

In order to access your email through MySlice, you must activate your netID and password.  Make sure to check your @syr.edu email account regularly for updates and important information for transfer students. Please contact Karen Baris with any questions at kebaris@syr.edu.
