The College of Professional Studies 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 or finish a college degree, pursue an opportunity for professional acceleration or microcredential, or to simply take classes of interest taught by world-class faculty.

Nearly all Syracuse University degrees and thousands of courses offered each semester can be completed part-time with daytime, evening, weekend online, and accelerated course formats.

“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 College of Professional Studies 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 the College of Professional Studies 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 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 we will have an unwavering belief in you and your ability to succeed.

In your service,

Michael J. Frasciello, Dean
