Course Selection and Registration

The course selection and registration process at Syracuse University is called First Term Enrollment Selections (FTES). Each school or college conducts this process differently and has a different deadline.  Pay close attention to your school or college's deadline for completing your FTES. 

You are able to select course titles and topics during the FTES process, but not the specific course section.  Once you've completed your FTES, an advisor in your home school or college will use your FTES to create your fall course schedule and register you for classes.  Your fall course schedule will be available to view on MySlice on August 1st.  If you would like to make changes to your schedule, you will have time during Syracuse Welcome to meet with your advisor and make those changes.

See below for specific information about your school or college's First Term Enrollment Selections process.
