    Optional Courses

  • Optional Courses
  • ECS – Academic Excellence Workshop for Calculus courses (1 credit)

    Highly recommended for first-year students because it is designed to supplement the theory taught in Pre-calculus – calculus III courses. Problems will incorporate course work. The computational component is designed to reinforce the understanding of concepts through a series of repetitive exercises. Limited enrollment. If you plan to enroll, on your First Term Enrollment Selections, check the appropriate box, under Academic Excellent Workshop.

    MST 101 or ASC 101 – Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)

    If you are interested in enrolling in the Army or Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), you should havereceived information in a separate mailing. If you have not received information, please call or e-mail to find out more about the program that interests you. The Army course meets once a week for academics, two leadership lab hours and three physical fitness hours each week, and the Air

    Force meets for three academic and three physical fitness hours each week. Courses taken through the ROTC program are counted as additional courses—they are in addition to the normal course load.

    AFROTC courses can be taken for credit or noncredit. Army ROTC offers merit based scholarships that pay for full tuition and fees at Syracuse, as well as monthly stipends. Air Force ROTC also offers merit- based scholarships that pay for full or partial tuition and fees, and gives each recipient a monthly stipend. In addition, all Army and Air Force ROTC scholarship winners receive a full Room & Board

    Leadership Award from the University that can be applied to their room and board fees.
