Summer 2023 Registration

Registration opens on May 1 for the winter/spring trimester which runs May 15-August 11.

We are offering both in-person and online classes this trimester. Please pay close attention to the class location as that will tell you whether the class is in-person or online.

Per the latest guidance of the Upstate Infection Prevention Department and in accordance with the CDC Public Health Guidelines for participation in events in non-clinical areas such as Upstate Oasis classes, masks will be optional unless the COVID transmission rate in Onondaga County is deemed “high” and then masks would be required. We will keep you informed of any changes.

Additionally, while we continue to encourage vaccination to reduce risk for severe illness from COVID, we will no longer require proof to attend Oasis classes or events.

Regardless of vaccination status, if you are experiencing ANY symptoms, please refrain from attending in-person Oasis classes or events. As always, we will update you with any new information as we receive it.

To take a class you must have created a MyOasis account in order to register online. Once registered, the link to your Zoom class(es) will be included in your registration receipt.  Please be sure to save your receipt or conveniently file Zoom meeting ID and passcode to use for each session of that class.

For more information or to register for a class that has already started, please call 315-464-6555.

We will keep in touch using our e-blast system, our website and our Facebook, Syracuse Oasis. In the meantime, please be sure to Opt-In on your MyOasis page. This will ensure that you continue to receive up to date class information.
