Registering for Fall 2024

Returning graduate students will register for Fall 2024 on April 3rd, 2024.  New graduate students will register for Fall 2024 on August 1st, 2024.

Please check your student record on MySlice for any ‘holds’ that may have been placed on your record.  You can do that by navigating to MySlice>Student Home>Holds OR MySlice>Student Home>Enrollment>Holds.  It may take a few days for a hold to be resolved, so please do check this as soon as possible.  Holds may be for billing, immunization, or parking ticket issues.

Courses will be registered through the University’s MySlice system.  When registering, please make sure that in addition to adding classes to the shopping cart, that you confirm the enrollment when able.  For technical issues with MySlice, please contact the University’s ITS service at help@syr.edu.

Registration Waitlist Fall 2024

Use the online form below to register for a waitlist. The PAIA department will monitor and move students off the waitlist after registration begins for main campus graduate students on April 3rd, 2024.   Waitlist requests before this date will be handled on a case-by-case basis.  In the meantime, you will want to register for a back-up course selection. In previous years, the department has been able to accommodate the majority of students on the waitlists, but those requests may not be processed until the first week of classes.

Plan to attend the class that interests you during the first week, even if you were not able to pre-register for it. We will contact you if you are able to get into a wait-listed class. Thanks in advance for your patience during this process!
