Transferring into Newhouse at Syracuse University
For anyone who enrolls at SU in any other program other than Newhouse (with the hopes of transferring into Newhouse),you may want to know that the cumulative GPA needed for acceptance for Fall 2017 was 3.90. A 3.786 was not accepted for a transfer from CAS (College of Arts and Sciences).
So, basically, the following part of Syracuse's website is completely misleading. They cover themselves by saying a "3.5 or above" for admission but a 3.9 requirement is a far cry from a "3.5 or above". The tour guides are also misleading when they tell you that if you work hard and get good grades you should be able to transfer into Newhouse.
From the website:
"2. Your cumulative GPA (which includes all courses taken at Syracuse University) must meet the GPA cut-off for admission to Newhouse. This varies depending upon the number of spaces available and the strength of the applicants in a given semester, but averages around 3.5 or above."
