University College is the place where you will begin to transform your life through education. As the college of part-time and continuing studies at Syracuse University, we support all individuals seeking to start a college degree, to finish a degree already started, or to simply take classes of interest taught by world-class faculty.

Nearly all Syracuse University degrees – more than 200 of them – and thousands of courses offered each semester can be completed part-time with daytime, evening, weekend, online, and accelerated classes.

“Part-time students” are Syracuse University students, with the same access as full-time students to campus, seminars, lecture series, study spaces, labs, libraries, celebrations, sporting events, and student services. In addition to all of that, part-time students are supported by a dedicated University College professional staff – many of whom are themselves first-generation college students who completed their degrees part-time. From academic advising and student success coaching to financial aid consulting and registration support, part-time students will find inside University College everything they need to succeed at Syracuse University.

In keeping with Syracuse University’s mission to prepare engaged citizens, scholars, and leaders for active participation in a global society, our mission at University College is to serve all individuals who seek knowledge and education to transform their lives. As you make the decision to join Syracuse University as a part-time student, please know that University College will have an unwavering belief in you and your ability to succeed.

In your service,

Michael J. Frasciello, Dean
