To ensure a thorough review of each of the candidate's application for admission to the College, the following deadlines have been established for the submission of all required documents:
*Summer admission will be limited to international students with English proficiency that exceeds ESOL level.
Apply before the current immigration status expires. However, prior consultation is required before initiating the process. Note: There are no guarantees for change of status to F1 since the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services of the Department of Homeland Security adjudicates on a case-by-case basis.
Apply at least three weeks before the start of the semester if all the Student Exchange and Visitor Information (SEVIS) requirements have been met.
In addition to the application requirements noted above, if you are transferring to Onondaga you may need to take additional steps.
If you are transferring from a college or university in the U.S., you must initiate the release of your SEVIS file to Onondaga. Download the SEVIS Transfer-In Verification Form to begin this process.
If you would like to have college credit level courses transferred from a non-U.S. college or university to Onondaga, contact foreign credential evaluation services. The college recommends the resources below.
