Blackboard is the supported Learning Management System at Syracuse University. Students and faculty can communicate with each other, submit assignments, participate in discussions, and more.

Degree Works

Degree Works is an online degree audit tool to help students and advisers monitor progress toward degree completion. The system combines Syracuse University’s degree requirements with completed coursework information into an easy-to-read worksheet that shows what courses and requirements still need to be completed.
Degree Works is easy to access through MySlice. Locate the Degree Works link found in the Student Services/Advising section to view your personal audit worksheet.


MySlice is SU’s online portal for critical information resources and administrative matters at Syracuse University. Students can register for classes, view grades, access and submit forms, pay Bursar bills, select housing and meal plans, and more.

Orange SUccess

Orange SUccess is an online advising tool that connects students with Syracuse University support resources. It allows faculty to track student progress throughout the semester to ensure the right people can identify, intervene, and help the student.

Students may schedule appointments with members of their success network (including their Newhouse Academic Adviser) through the Orange SUccess portal. Students can click the My Success Network icon on the Home page to display their personalized network. For each person or service listed, students will find contact information, supporting websites, and, if online scheduling is enabled, a link to make an appointment.

Orange SUccess is easy to access through MySlice. Locate the Orange SUccess link found in the Student Services/Advising section to view your personal success network.


Syracuse University has established email as the primary vehicle for official communication with students, faculty and staff. The University expects that students will receive and read email in a timely manner. Failure to receive and read email in a timely manner does not absolve recipients from knowing and complying with the content of such communications.


Center for Learning and Student Success (CLASS) offers in-person small group (1 – 6 students) tutoring for students enrolled in selected large undergraduate courses that have traditionally created hurdles for students. You can find more information on group tutoring here. Group tutoring takes place in 348 Bird Library.

Individual tutoring is also offered through CLASS and Newhouse will cover the cost. Find a SU tutor that covers the course(s) you need via the Tutor Matching Services website. If you are unable to find a tutor for a course, SU’s CLASS office can assist in finding a tutor. Once you have selected your tutor, email Assistant Dean, Karen McGee, at to get a voucher code, which is needed to set up a tutoring session. Newhouse begins with a $50 voucher and most tutor charge between $15-$17/hour range. Learn more about individual tutoring here.
