As a part-time student at Syracuse University, registering for classes each semester is one of the most important things you’ll do all year. Early registration is always a good idea, because you want to lock in the classes required for your degree. The most in-demand classes tend to fill up quickly, so early registration is your best bet.

See the links below for instructions on registering, adding or dropping classes, and important dates to remember. As always, if you have any questions or concerns about registering for classes, talk to an academic advisor. They’ll help you with your class choices.
