Registering for Spring 2023

For those of you who plan to register on November 2, 2023, 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

Registration Waitlist Spring 2023

Use the online form 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 November 2, 2023.   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!

Registering for Language Classes

For International Relations students seeking to take an additional foreign language at Syracuse University, you will first need to take a language placement exam.  This can be done by emailing the Department of Language, Literature, and Linguistics at, identifying yourself as a graduate student and sharing your SUID number, and requesting a placement exam.  Please do note that the placement exam would have to be in a language currently taught by the Department of Language, Literature, and Linguistics.
