Resources for Student Success
The Office of Student Success provides guidance and support during your NYU journey; from the moment you decide to join the NYU community until you don a cap and gown at Commencement. You can engage with our efforts that include academic coaching, individualized guidance, and technological resources to help you achieve your full potential in the classroom and beyond.
Our Student Success Specialists are professional administrators that are your NYU experts. Their relationship with every student is distinct and shaped by the student's needs and goals. Students can meet with a Specialist with a specific question, an occasional check-in, or for ongoing support. Specialists can help with:
- Set short- and long-term personal, academic, and professional goals
- Learn how to grow relationships with faculty, peers, and advisors
- Build academic skills, including staying motivated, time management, and test-taking strategies
- Navigate moments of change at NYU, like adjusting to college or taking a leave of absence
- Discover campus resources tailored to their needs and interests
