An early orientation to the first-year student experience at Susquehanna! Choose from one of five dates in June. You'll complete your foreign language placement tests, take your photo for your student ID, discuss options for your fall course schedule, and gain more insights on what to expect when you arrive on campus in August. Unable to attend? We'll be getting more info to you in mid-July about how to make-up what you missed!

This one-week service-learning opportunity in late July is open to 20 incoming first-year students. Participants are immersed in service projects and learning activities focused on homelessness, serving people in need in both the Susquehanna neighborhood and Washington, D.C. Click here for more information about SU SPLASH (Students Promoting Leadership and Awareness Through Serving the Homeless). Sign up no later than July 1! Preference given to early applicants.

Student Tuition Prepayment Option

Students/families are able to prepay tuition fees by completing the Tuition Prepayment Contract Agreement and submitting payment for two, three or four years by July 31 of the current year. Prepayment by July 31 will guarantee the current tuition rate for the upcoming semesters. Students/families are required to pay the full tuition fee, not subtracting any discounts based on grants or scholarship funds provided by Susquehanna University. Prepayment is not transferable or assignable to any other student. Please contact the Business Services Office to request a copy of the Tuition Prepayment Contract Agreement.
