University College is the point of entry to Syracuse University for nontraditional students. University College offers degree programs, certificates, and noncredit courses in a variety of formats to accommodate the busy schedules of part-time students, many of whom juggle work, family, and community responsibilities along with their educational commitments. Traditional classroom courses are offered in the daytime, evenings, and online. Condensed, and accelerated classes are also available. University College also administers Summer at Syracuse for the entire University – part-time, full-time, and visiting students. Four sessions are offered each summer, with classes available in different formats, including on campus and online.
