The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is the place to go when you don’t know where to go with academic navigation questions. It offers a variety of academic support resources, including cross-school advising and peer tutoring through the University Learning Center, as well as referrals to other academic resources from our SMART Bar (see below). Additional resources at the ARC include an Argo Tea Café, computers and ITS printer, and a variety of study spaces.
Academic advising and support for the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program and Higher Education Opportunity Program is also located in the Academic Resource Center.
To navigate the Academic Resource Center or to find your way to other academic resources around campus, stop by our S.M.A.R.T. Bar – a reception and information desk located by the main entrance. The S.M.A.R.T. Bar is staffed by a team of friendly and knowledgeable students (SMART Aides) who are full of information on Student Mentoring, Academic Resources, Tutoring. They can sign you up for a walk-in advising appointment with one of our cross-school advisors, direct you to an academic coach or a study skills workshop in the University Learning Center, or provide you with a tutoring schedule. As NYU students, SMART Aides fully understand the complexities of navigating the University from a student perspective.
NYU offers two special programs for residents of New York State.
Sponsored by the New York State Department of Education, the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) at NYU is designed to assist students who are residents of New York State who are academically and educationally disadvantaged. In addition to financial assistance, students in the program receive supportive services including counseling and tutoring to help ensure their success. Students must meet academic and family income guidelines to be eligible, and must attend an six-week summer program prior to the start of their freshman year. No special application is required for HEOP consideration, and New York State residents are automatically reviewed for eligibility during our normal application review process.
CSTEP is a NYU program for New York State residents underrepresented in business, law, science, and health-related programs who do not qualify for the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP). CSTEP students receive the same academic and counseling services that HEOP students receive, and participate in the same six-week summer program before their freshman year. No special application is required for CSTEP consideration, and New York State residents are automatically reviewed for eligibility during our normal application review process.
