First Semester Schedule
You will receive emails to your Syracuse University email account prompting you to log into MySlice and complete an online form that lists the courses you are interested in taking your first semester. An advisor will use the information you provide in the online form to create your fall schedule and enroll you in courses. We do our best to grant your first preference in classes, but it is not always possible to do so.
First year students take approximately 16-17 credits in their first semester (dual degree students may be enrolled in up to 19 credits).
You will be enrolled in:
- IST 101
- IST 195
- SEM 100
- WRT 105
- Quantitative skills course
If you are bringing in any type of transfer credit (AP/IB and/or course(s) taken at another institution), there is an option to indicate this within MySlice and your schedule will be made accordingly.
Make sure to take your math placement exam to be placed into the appropriate course.
The rest of your credits will be liberal arts courses offered through the Syracuse University College of Arts and Sciences. You will use the online form to select courses that sound interesting to you.
You must complete the online form to be enrolled in courses. Please be mindful of all deadlines. Fall schedules will be released in MySlice in late summer.
If after you receive your schedule you want to make edits, we have dedicated meeting times for you to make adjustments to your first semester schedule during Welcome Week. There is no need to set-up an individual appointment before Welcome Week. Scheduling adjustment times will be printed in the Welcome Week program.
