Part-time students at Syracuse University receive a full range of support, services, and encouragement from our academic and financial aid advisors. From registration to graduation, UC students know they have somewhere to turn as they navigate the journey to a degree as an adult student. The academic advisors at UC are certified life coaches who use a Master Academic Plan (MAP) to personalize their interactions with students. They are able to guide students through roadblocks that arise as they juggle job, family, financial, and academic responsibilities on their way to a college degree. A Peer Mentoring program encourages partnerships between new students and their peers who are successfully moving toward their academic goals.
Part-time students have the benefit of dedicated academic advisors who are certified life coaches and will work one-on-one with you to formulate your academic plan. They not only guide you through the process of registration, course selection, choosing a major and accessing financial aid, but help you overcome any obstacles that can stand in the way of your success.
