The Syracuse University Undergraduate Course Catalog and Graduate Course Catalog are published online annually in July and are primarily intended for use by currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff. The catalogs provide an overview of the University’s curriculum, academic programs, facilities, and educational resources. They also include University academic policies, rules, regulations, and procedures; information about degree and certificate programs, including degree requirements; a listing and description of courses; and faculty information. Links to other related information are also included.
Please be aware that the information concerning academic requirements, courses, and programs of study in the catalog does not establish an irrevocable contract between the student and the University. The University can change, discontinue, or add academic requirements, courses, and programs of study at any time, without notice. Of course, every effort will be made to provide timely notice to students in order to help in the planning process. It is the responsibility of the individual student to confirm that all appropriate degree requirements are met.
I encourage you to explore this catalog for opportunities that will make your Syracuse University experience truly unique, exciting, valuable, and unforgettable.
