Does Susquehanna plan on holding regional events or visiting high schools in the spring?

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 spring. 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?

Please schedule a virtual visit or contact your Admission Counselor and they will connect you with someone to discuss your interests.

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.

FAFSA. What is it? Do I need to complete it? When is it available?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2021-22 academic year is available (opened Oct. 1, 2020). Check out our College Affordability Checklist for additional information about completing the FAFSA.

As a transfer student, can I find out how my coursework would transfer to a specific major at Susquehanna?

Yes. You can view our transfer course equivalencies or email Reuben Councill for an informal transfer credit evaluation.
