New Student Information


Welcome to the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University!

We are so glad that you decided to join our Class of 2028.

Part of your transition to college life and the Whitman community includes selecting courses for your first semester and some assignments related to the IMPRESS Program. You will receive information from Assistant Dean Lindsay Quilty to your Syracuse email address 1-2 times per month with more details on these items. All updates will also be available on this webpage.

Registration Information

New student fall course registration takes place over the summer. All students are sent a survey on June 3 which is used by the academic advisors to determine the most appropriate courses for the fall semester. Academic advisors enroll students directly in several of their required courses and then the student is responsible for completing their schedule during the week of August 5 (see timeline below). In late July, students will receive a personalized email detailing the courses they will need to add during self-registration.

The advisors will host several webinar sessions from July 30 - Aug. 2 to train students on how to use the MySlice course registration system, but also to answer any questions related to the registration process. We encourage all students to attend one session. 

Please review these documents prior to self-registration.
