Are the Offices of Admission and Student Financial Services open?
Yes. Some of our staff are working remotely, but we are still available to assist you and answer your questions by phone or email – you can even schedule a virtual visit!
Can I visit campus and sign up for events?
In the interest of our community's health and safety, on-campus visits through Dec. 31, 2020 are canceled. All prospective students and their families are invited to join us virtually. Please:
- register for a virtual visit,
- join a virtual information session,
- take a virtual tour of our magnificent campus, or
- Ask A Student (by emailing them).
Does Susquehanna plan on holding regional events or visiting high schools in the fall?
While we cherish the opportunity to connect with you in person in your community, we will not be traveling to off-campus regional or high school events this fall. Our admission team will be participating in virtual high school visits and college fairs as options are presented. Please consider the opportunity to engage with us virtually by connecting with a counselor or attending an info session.
I would like to talk with a professor or student in my academic area of interest. How can I set that up?
Am I required to submit an SAT/ACT?
No. You can choose to submit your SAT or ACT exam scores (or both), but you also can apply without submitting scores under our test-optional plan. See more about applying.
Will changes in high school grading from A-F to a pass/fail system due to the COVID-19 affect my admission or scholarships?
No. We’ve always used a holistic review process to evaluate transcripts. We will start by looking at your high school’s metrics for academic rigor and performance. Then, for example, your high school guidance counselor can provide a School Report Form to help us understand your preparation. You also can let us know your circumstances. In fact, SU is represented on a list of 350 institutions nationwide confirming what admission offices value and expect – and don’t expect – from students during the pandemic.
Are you accepting AP exams for credit, given the new format?
The new testing format for Advanced Placement, CLEP and IB exams does not change our policy for accepting scores.
