Welcome new VPA students! We are thrilled that you will be joining us this fall.

Until May 1 you have been in contact with the VPA Office of Recruitment and Admissions, but now that you have committed to Syracuse, our Office of Academic and Career Advising will be your main point of contact for advising, academic progress, and other questions you might have as you start your academic career at Syracuse University.


The first order of business is to get your fall schedules in place. This is called the First Term Enrollment Selections (FTES) process. Through this system you will be able to tell us about the courses you are interested in, and the information you provide is vital to help us put your schedule together.

Access to FTES is through your MySlice account, and you will need to activate your NetID at netid.syr.edu in order to start. Once you have logged in, find the Student Services list, and select “Enrollment – First Term Enrollment Selections” to begin the FTES form.

View instructions fo complete the FTES form

The menus on this link are very informative and include the steps you can take prior to starting the FTES process; including instructions on how to complete the form for your specific major, important dates, VPA computer recommendations, and other pertinent information for your first semester. Please be sure to read all instructions carefully and complete all required fields in the form. Do not forget to submit your FTES form! Once the info is submitted, we will build your class schedule.

We are very excited to meet you and do not be surprised if we call you in the next few weeks.

We look forward to meeting you in August during Syracuse Welcome. Stay in contact by always checking your @syr.edu email address. You can also follow us on Twitter @SU_VPA_OSA and Instagram @VPAOSA.
