Our Mission

To deliver exceptional support and services to a diverse part-time student population seeking a Syracuse University education. To be an innovator of market-sensitive professional degrees, non-credit programs, and executive education. To act as a connector and catalyst for excellence among the schools and colleges within Syracuse University.

The home for part-time Syracuse University students:

  • Part-time Matriculated Students: We are the gateway to Syracuse University for part-time matriculated students whose goal is to pursue a degree or earn a certificate or credential from any of SU’s schools and colleges.
  • Non-matriculated Students: We are also the home of -students who are not pursuing an SU degree but are interested in continuing education for professional development. We also welcome visiting students who will take a class and transfer the earned credits to their home institution.
  • Flexible Course Formats: We offer a variety of degree programs, certificates, and noncredit courses in the daytime, evenings, online, and in condensed and accelerated formats.

Offering Summer and Winter break courses:
