General Information About the Office


The single most important ingredient responsible for a student’s success in college is the level to which they become engaged with their experience.  These activities include but are not limited to:

  • Class attendance
  • Participation in academic clubs and social activities
  • Development of new friends
  • Choosing an academic major
  • Initiating conversations with advisors and faculty
  • Early success academically, socially, or in a sport
  • An expressed sense of well being with others and family
With years of experience offering confidential, goal-oriented counseling services, the staff members of Utica College's Office of Student Success are trained to help students address a variety of academic and personal concerns. We are an invaluable resource to help you meet your educational goals.

Whether you are having difficulty choosing a major or need assistance with a personal concern, the staff of the Office of Student Success are here to provide you with direct counseling services or with referrals to off-campus agencies.
