Office of Undergraduate Student Success and Advising
The programs and services offered through New York Tech’s Advising and Enrichment Center (AEC) have grown exponentially in the past few years—both in response to our institutional priority to improve the student experience, including retention and graduation rates, but also to address student support needs due to COVID-19. These expanded services are here to stay.
In an effort to better define and promote the distinct programs and services of each area, the Advising and Enrichment Center, which houses myriad student success and support services, is now known as the Office of Undergraduate Student Success and Advising, comprising three branches:
- Undergraduate Academic Advising (UAA) will provide undergraduate students with comprehensive academic advisement, graduation planning, and academic progress guidance. The UAA team serves as the primary academic advisors for first-year and transfer students, from onboarding throughout their first year. Additionally, the UAA provides general advisement support to all other undergraduate students, manages New York Tech’s Early Alert program, and oversees undergraduate students who are on academic probation.
- Academic Success and Enrichment (ASE) will manage the Learning Center, offering course-based and skill-based peer tutoring, both in-person and virtually, as well as Supplemental Instruction and the First-Year GUIDE program at the Long Island and New York City campuses. ASE also provides convenient and accessible online resources on Canvas through the Finding Success in Online Learning (FSOL) course as well as the many Student Success Modules in various academic and student support courses.
- Student Success Initiatives (SSI) will oversee several student success programs and initiatives including ACE/iAchieve, My Guide to Success @ New York Tech (in support of the First-Year GUIDE program), New York Tech Advance (college-in-high school program), and the campus-wide Financial Success & Wellness initiative (launching soon!). The SSI also ensures that student resources are up to date and align with students’ changing needs.
