Our Response

Syracuse University is committed to providing enhanced support to our students, families, faculty, and staff during this trying time.

We are working closely with our technology partner to ensure our online programs continue to operate on a normal basis. Here are some of the ways we are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and working to support our Orange community.

Online Programs: Our online programs are positioned to support student learning from virtually anywhere. These programs remain open, with weekly live classes held in Zoom classrooms. Students are able to meet with one another and professors online at any time, and faculty in these programs are trained to teach in the online environment.

Digital Campus: The digital campus for our online programs is designed to support connection and collaboration between people living all over the world. There are no barriers to discussion, and our online students remain active in their coursework.

Innovation and Advancement: We are always monitoring our online curricula and technology to ensure the most rigorous and engaging experience for students. Our technology partner remains diligent and will continue to assess this experience.

Ongoing Support Services: At this time, our admissions and student support teams remain active and available. You can reach out at any time to speak with a counselor on either of these teams to ask any questions you have.

In-Person Experiences: Hands-on, in-person learning is a cornerstone of our online programs. We are evaluating in-person experiences on a program-by-program basis and communicating directly with affected faculty and current students. 


Are you still accepting applications to the online program?

Yes. Currently applications are being accepted and processed. If you have concerns about completing application requirements at this time, reach out to an admissions counselor.

Are online classes cancelled?

No. All classes are running as scheduled. If you are a current student and have any questions or concerns about attending classes, reach out to your instructor, academic advisor, or to student support.

What should I do if I am unable to send GRE scores, letters of recommendation, or official transcripts?

Syracuse University has adjusted its application requirements for online programs. Additionally, if you are having difficulty securing required documentation, contact our admissions team.
