How will I register?

As in previous semesters, you will still be issued an appointed registration time.  This time can be found on your myslice account.  At your appointed time, you will register for a minimum of 12 credits (full time status) of LA based course offerings.

Students should meet with their academic advisors in advance for a degree check, and, for assistance putting together a schedule that will work with their remaining degree requirements.

All students are required to register for the mandatory LA Entertainment Industry Practicum (which includes the internship experience and the class component) and a minimum of 3 credits of LA-based class(es).

I am not a Syracuse University student but really want to apply. Is that possible?

Yes!  You will need to enroll as a full time, non-matriculated student of Syracuse University for the semester you are participating in.  Please double check with your home college financial aid office as this requirement could affect your current financial aid award.
