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 Syracuse University’s schools and colleges.
  • Non-matriculated Students: We are also the home of students who are not pursuing a Syracuse University degree but are interested in continuing their education for professional development.
