This will give you access to the University’s email, financial aid and registration system. It is essential that you activate and check your email account regularly, as it will be the primary communication source for class, program and school information before and after you arrive on campus. Your SUID is printed on your admit letter and Intent to Register form.
Need-based aid is administered through the University’s Office of Financial Aid, which facilitates the disbursement of government loan funds, the only form of need-based aid available to graduate students. In order to be considered for federal aid you must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If your program begins in the summer, you must file for both 2016-17 and 2017-18. You may apply online and should do so as soon as possible. You should also check your Financial Aid To-Do List on MySlice in order to apply for summer financial aid. The curriculum sheets above indicate how many credits you will take each term.
Health form and insurance
You must complete and return the mandatory health form by June 30. The form requires your physician's signature, and may require a physical or immunizations. Health services are provided for students by the Syracuse University Office of Health Services through payment of mandatory health fees.
Health insurance is also required of all graduate students, to cover expenses not included in the health fee and medical treatment outside of the Health Center, such as emergency room care, hospitalization, eye care and dental services.
