Syracuse University has been helping students fulfill their educational and career goals since 1870. For nearly 150 years, SU has welcomed full-time students to enhance their lives and start working toward their career goals. Beginning in 1918, SU opened its doors to part-time, nontraditional students who wanted to improve themselves through higher education. As the home of part-time study at SU, University College invites you to take part in all that SU has to offer. Whether you’re part-time, full-time, or just interested in taking a single class, you’ve come to the right place. Choose your category below and find the information you need.


Part-time Undergraduate Study

Some people don’t attend college after high school, and many start an associate or bachelor’s degree, but life intervenes and they never finish. If you’d like to start or finish a college degree, just take a class or two, or work toward a certificate, University College can help you do it on a part-time basis. Even if you’re working and raising a family, you can study part-time by taking classes in the evening, online, or through other flexible formats.
