You can choose from more than two hundred degrees at Syracuse University, with bachelor’s degree, associate degree, master’s degree, and Ph.D. options.

You may be determined to finish a degree you started years ago but never completed. Or maybe you never went to college but find yourself limited in your employment options and unfulfilled in your career aspirations. We welcome you and your goal to study part-time at Syracuse University.
Part-time students can earn a bachelor’s degree, associate degree or certificate from Syracuse University in a wide range of majors and disciplines. Find the program that works for you.
Once you’ve been admitted to University College, you’ll need to choose your classes and register for them. It’s best to get started early – some classes fill quickly and you don’t want to get closed out of the ones you need for your degree program.
Keep an updated copy of the academic calendar, and highlight the dates and deadlines. It is imperative that you meet all deadlines for registration, dropping or adding a class, applying for financial aid, etc.
All students requesting financial aid must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each academic year. Additional requirements for completing financial aid applications depend on which type of aid applicant you are.
University College offers a number of scholarships and grants for need-based and merit-based students, and student veterans.
University College students work long and hard on the requirements for an associate or bachelor’s degree. The journey often takes decades, but the pride and satisfaction of finally reaching that goal is worth celebrating. All UC students who have successfully completed their studies in December 2015, May 2016, or August 2016 were invited to participate in Commencement and celebrate their achievements with their family, friends, professors, and classmates.
The 2016 University College Commencement Celebration for part-time students took place on Thursday, May 12 at 6 p.m. at Hendricks Chapel. A reception took place immediately following the ceremony on the Quad in Tent A. Graduates and their guests enjoyed a festive reception, filled with grateful students, proud families, and wonderful food provided by Syracuse University Catering.
Before receiving a diploma, students must file a Diploma Request. If you are planning to complete your degree work and have not filed your diploma request, please activate the “file diploma request” on http://myslice.syr.edu.
Academic advisors are always available for information and advice, but it is the student’s responsibility to know and fulfill all degree requirements for graduation. Participation in Convocation and Commencement ceremonies does not necessarily indicate that all degree requirements have been completed. Contact your advisor at 315-443-3261 if you have any questions.
