Congratulations on your admission to the College of Engineering and Computer Science!
To allow you to enroll in the courses most appropriate for you, Syracuse University has developed an online registration process called First Term Enrollment Selection (FTES)—available on myslice.syr.edu beginning May 18, 2020.
Discovery Madrid students do not need to complete the FTES. You will receive an information packet in June for your discovery center from Syracuse Abroad with course offerings, schedule, and field study.
Please follow the instructions below to complete your course selection by June 12, 2020.
Step 1: Confirm your browser is compatible with MySlice.
For information on which browsers are fully supported, review the MySlice supported browsers.
Step 2: Activate your Net ID and password at http://its.syr.edu/netid/.
Step 3: Complete the Mathematics Placement Exam.
The Mathematics Placement Exam must be completed before you complete your FTES. It is found online at http://myslice.syr.edu. For assistance, review the Mathematics Placement Exam instructions. The results of the exam will allow us to recommend preliminary placement in a math course in your first semester. Your final placement will be determined based on another assessment given during Orientation Weekend.
Step 4: Locate the FTES in MySlice.
Sign into http://myslice.syr.edu and select “Enrollment – First Term Enrollment Selections” located in the Student Service listing.
Step 5: Review instructions and course descriptions.
Under “Resources,” review “Instructions: How to complete this form,” “Required, Non-Technical and Optional Course Descriptions,” “Courses Available to First-Year Students,” and “FTES FAQs.”
Step 6: Begin to complete the FTES form, following instructions in the form closely.
Refer to the documents listed in step 5 if you get stuck.
Step 7: On page 3 of the FTES form, choose an elective. (If you are a computer engineering or mechanical engineering major, please skip this step.)
Choose one elective from “Courses Available to First-Year Students.” Please indicate your first choice and up to three alternate choices in case we are unable to accommodate your first choice.
Step 8: On page 3, choose a replacement elective.
If you are coming in with AP/college credit, you may replace related courses with an elective course. Choose the elective from “Courses Available to First-Year Students.” Please indicate your first choice and up to four alternate choices in case we are unable to accommodate your first choice. This may overlap with your choices from Step 6.
Step 9: On page 4, review and confirm your selections.
Click “Submit Final Course Selections” to confirm.
