In light of ongoing developments around COVID-19, the Center for Student Success will be discontinuing in-person tutoring services for the Spring 2020 semester including Subject Tutoring, Writers' Studio, and Academic Coaching. During this time, we will still provide tutoring through STAR-NY offered free to SUNY New Paltz students from 7PM-12AM, Sunday-Thursday through May 7, 2020. For full online tutoring offerings, please visit online tutoring. If you need additional support, please "raise your hand" in Starfish.
Our focus is on student learning and student success.
The Center for Student Success promotes student learning, academic engagement, and timely degree completion through the coordination of peer-based academic support programs and the management of the College’s Academic Success Referral System, Starfish Early Alert.
Through collaborative efforts with faculty, academic departments and student services, the Center provides an inclusive, student-oriented learning environment which stimulates academic engagement and the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and personal attributes in support of lifelong learning.
