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.

Both matriculated and non-matriculated students at Syracuse University may take flexible format classes (certain prerequisites and other restrictions may apply).

These classes may fulfill program requirements at SU or other institutions.

Because all classes are contingent upon enrollment, we strongly encourage students to register as soon as possible. Unfilled classes may be canceled. Therefore, early registration enables us to confirm class offerings. Early registration may also allow you to participate in a more flexible payment option. Before matriculated students register for any of these courses, we strongly recommend that you consult with your academic advisor to ensure that courses are appropriate for your individual circumstances. Go to MySlice to search for classes for the latest course updates.
