Academic Support Services

The College provides various mechanisms of student academic support, including tutoring services for all students at no cost, and information literacy and research tools via Monroe College Libraries. 

The Student Success Center in the Bronx and the Academic Center in New Rochelle actively support the mission of the College in its commitment to each student's academic success in a supportive environment. These Centers foster independent learning techniques that contribute to the student's academic and personal growth while encouraging personal responsibility and accountability for one's own learning.
