Congratulations on your admission to the College of Engineering and Computer Science!

Welcome to Syracuse University!

We are so excited for you to join our campus community this fall and to begin your Becoming Orange Journey!

Congratulations on your admission to the College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS). We are looking forward to personally meeting you when you arrive.

To allow you to enroll in the courses most appropriate for you, Syracuse University has developed a Qualtrics survey called First Year Student Registration (FYRS). The first step in the course registration process is the completion of the same and the link to this survey will be emailed to you beginning the week of May 9, 2022 and must be completed by June 30, 2022.

This survey is important because it will provide us with the information, we need to begin creating your Fall schedule.  There are two parts to scheduling your courses. We will be registering you for a partial schedule in mid-July and you will be able to add more courses in early August. Additional detailed information and instructions will be sent to your syr.edu email account in mid-July.

Discovery Madrid students are excluded from taking the Qualtrics Survey. You will receive an academic packet the first week of July from Syracuse Abroad with course offerings, schedule, and field study.

Based on your major you will be automatically enrolled in a partial schedule in the following courses unless you expect to receive external credit.
