Syracuse University offers classes that meet for the full session or in a flexible format.

Full Session Classes:

In fall/spring, classes that meet from the first week through the published last week of classes are referred to as full-session classes. In summer, full-session classes meet for the entire summer session (MayMester, Summer Session I, Summer Session II or Combined Sessions) in which they are scheduled. Full-session classes ordinarily follow the University’s published official academic deadlines for that term. However, there are exceptions, and it is best to check the deadline of the specific class before you attempt to add or drop the class. For exact deadline dates associated with a class, consult MySlice>Schedule of Classes. Once you are registered, view deadlines via your online class schedule at MySlice>Enrollment>View My Class Schedule or MySlice>Finances>View Financial Deadlines.

Flexible Format Classes:

Classes that do not fit within the University’s published official term full session are referred to as flexible format classes. These classes meet within the session but not for the entire session, or the class begins or ends outside of the session beginning or end dates. Flexible format classes have deadlines unique to that specific class. Those deadlines may not coincide with the University’s published official academic deadlines of that term. Check the deadline specific to that class before you attempt to add or drop the class. For exact deadline dates associated with a class, consult MySlice>Schedule of Classes. Once you are registered, view deadlines via your online class schedule at MySlice>Enrollment>View My Class Schedule or MySlice>Finances>View Financial Deadlines.

Schedule Adjustment

Schedule Adjustment (adding and dropping classes) is a self-service process for University College students. Eligible students have access to add and drop classes via MySlice through the academic deadlines of that class. Students are not required to obtain signatures to add or drop prior to the established deadlines. You may want to discuss your decision with an academic advisor who might be able to help resolve a problem or suggest another option. Don’t just start or stop going to class.
