Course Materials

It is the student’s responsibility to purchase their own textbooks, software, and necessary equipment. You will receive a listing of required texts prior to the start of classes.

The syllabuses will reflect the most up-to-date information regarding the required texts. Syllabuses are located in the course “Toolbox” link in each of your courses in 2SU. Courses will be available to view approximately seven days before the first day of the term’s classes.

Please note that individual course materials are subject to change at the instructor's discretion prior to the start of classes. For this reason, we recommend purchasing books with a return option. Textbooks can be purchased directly from the Syracuse Bookstore or from a textbook provider of your choice.

If you would rather order a textbook through a third-party vendor, first confirm the books you need are on the updated textbook list prior to each term. You should also confirm that the versions or editions of each textbook from a third-party vendor match the versions on your list prior to ordering your books.

If you have questions or need assistance, please reach out to Student Success at 855-969-3383 or e-mail us.

In-Person Intensives and Remote Options

We offer in-person intensives and remote course options to give students increased flexibility in how they earn their Executive MPA.

Optional ALEKS Assessment

Incoming ExecutiveMPA@Syracuse students have the option to review key algebraic and geometric principles through the ALEKS course.

It is highly recommended that students successfully complete the ALEKS course assessment prior to starting coursework for PAI 897: Fundamentals of Policy Analysis. The purpose of this review is to improve your understanding of course content and your performance in the class.

The cost affiliated with access to the customized math preparatory course for six weeks is $40.

Please contact your SSA for more information on registering for the ALEKS course.
