Center for Academic Success

The Manhattan College Center for Academic Success is committed to providing student centered programs and initiatives designed to enhance the learning experience of all students. Students will work in tandem with qualified and caring professionals and peers to receive personal and academic support to ensure their undergraduate success. The Center for Academic Success (CAS) has several locations throughout the campus including the Writing Center in Miguel Hall, The Learning Center in De La Salle Hall, and the Math & Engineering Center in Leo Hall.

The Center prides itself on its holistic approach to learning and is proud to offer various programs designed to support the entire student body. We provide tutoring designed to support students with their courses by providing them with content-specific assistance accessed through individual or on-line tutoring. All tutors employed through the CAS meet the highest standards of academic achievement and are certified through the National Tutoring Association. We also provide workshops focused on academic enhancement designed to teach innovative strategies and techniques to assist students with their own unique challenges and experiences.  

The Manhattan College Supplemental Instruction Fellowship Program is another facet of the Center which targets traditionally difficult courses and provides regularly scheduled peer facilitated study groups. Supplemental Instruction is an academic assistance program designed to improve student academic performance and increase retention.

The Writing Center offers writing instruction to all members of the Manhattan College community. Assistance is available for writing assignments from any discipline as well as for any professional writing activities. Our cornerstone practice is one-on-one conferencing with trained writing consultants: we help writers identify problems and implement solutions at any point during their writing process. We forge intellectual partnerships to work on specific assignments, to increase confidence, and to improve overall writing performance. Various writing workshops will augment this one-on-one philosophy.

Specialized Resource Center

The Specialized Resource Center (SRC) serves all students with a special need or disability.  The SRC is a resource for students, faculty and the college at large. Use of services is voluntary, strictly confidential and without fee. The mission of the center is to ensure educational opportunity for all students with special needs by providing access to full participation in campus life. This is accomplished by assisting students in arranging individualized support services. A sampling of auxiliary aids and/or academic adjustments offered by the SRC for students providing appropriate documentation based on their individual needs for no fee include: priority seating; alternative testing environments; readers, note takers and scribes; access to adaptive technology and liaison with faculty and other college departments. The SRC is located within room 301B, Miguel Hall.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Manhattan College encourages students to enhance their education through Study Abroad programs. In order to participate in such a program, a student must generally have a minimum cumulative index of 2.75. Students generally take a semester or a year abroad in their junior year, and occasionally in first semester of senior year. Participation in Study Abroad in second semester of senior year may interfere with graduating on time.

The College offers Study Abroad opportunities in many countries, including Manhattan’s own program at the University of Madrid. Exchange programs are available at the Universities of Paris (through MICEFA), LaSalle University of Mexico City and LaSalle University of Barcelona, Spain. Study Abroad programs are also available through our partnership with the colleges and universities of the Lower Hudson Consortium and the LaSallian International Programs Consortium.
