Am I still considered a Syracuse University student?

Yes.  You will continue to be enrolled as a full time, matriculated student of Syracuse University.  You will register for a minimum of 12 credits based on SULA campus classes, an internship with class components and (online) Arts & Sciences classes. This combination of classes will work together with your current major curriculum to ensure your requirements are met and you will graduate on time.

How will I register?

Upon acceptance into the program, you will be coded for registration as an SULA Semester student.  At your appointed registration time (listed on myslice), you will register for LA based classes.

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.
