New Online Noncredit Courses Available Through Orange Academy
University College (UC) announces Orange Academy—a set of online noncredit courses that offer high engagement learning opportunities in a low-stress academic environment. Courses are open to adults and high school students.
Orange Academy courses will be taught by Syracuse University faculty and instructors at a reduced rate. The virtual synchronous classes are offered in the evening in a four-, six- or eight-week format.
There is a diverse set of disciplines to choose from, including art, business, film, culture, STEM and writing. Participants can pursue an interest, strengthen their skills and increase their knowledge base.
While there are no exams, graded papers or prerequisites for Orange Academy courses, faculty and instructors will provide feedback on progress, skill development and overall learning. After successfully completing the course, participants will earn a certificate from Syracuse University and will have the option to purchase a noncredit transcript.
Registration for spring session I is now open. Registration deadline is Jan. 11. Visit the Orange Academy webpage for course descriptions and registration deadlines.
