There are many reasons to study part-time at SU. 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, whether you’re seeking a Syracuse University degree, an academic certificate or credential, or simply pursuing a love of learning.

Getting Started

If you want to explore the possibilities or get started as a part-time student at Syracuse University, you have a few options:

  • Attend an Information Session either online or at University College, 700 University Avenue. Sessions are offered at multiple days and times, including some Saturdays. Check the events calendar and R.S.V.P. online.
  • Drop in any weekday between 2 and 4 p.m. and meet one-on-one with academic and financial aid advisors.
  • If you can’t visit, call us at 315.443.3261 or contact the Student Academic Services office to speak to an advisor.

Grants, Scholarships & Incentives

Making college affordable for part-time students is a priority at Syracuse University. For starters, part-time undergraduates pay reduced tuition. And there are a variety of grants and scholarships targeted to part-time students that can significantly reduce the cost of attendance. If you’re transferring to SU with a very good academic record, you may be eligible for a UC Achiever Scholarship. Individuals whose financial and educational backgrounds would prohibit them from regular admission to Syracuse University can apply through the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP).
