Centrally located in the Diane M. Halle Library, the centers and offices within Academic Resources and Student Success, provide  a variety of options for students which embrace the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines in order to facilitate them to become learners who are engaged, resourceful, strategic, goal-directed, purposeful, and motivated.

The Accessibility Services Office

Endicott seeks to provide a supportive environment for students, staff, and faculty and is committed to providing equal access to educational programs and services to those with disabilities. Students requesting accommodations must self-identify and provide appropriate documentation of their disability.

The Advising Services Center

The Advising Services Center (ASC) serves as a resource for students and faculty regarding the advising process and the procedures and forms utilized for selecting courses, changing majors, declaring a minor, and adding, dropping, or withdrawing from a class.

The Peer Tutor Certification Program

Peer tutors are highly qualified students who are trained and certified following the guidelines of the College Reading and Learning Association. Peer tutors are successful students who have achieved a 3.0 GPA or higher, have been recommended by a faculty member, and have received a B or above in all of the courses they tutor. Peer tutors work in the Tutoring Center and the Writing Center, and are available for one-on-one or small group sessions by appointment.

The Student Success Office

The Student Success Office serves as an intermediary for students and families regarding unresolved issues. We monitor student retention, which includes first-year student retention, overall student success from year-to-year, and attrition (i.e. why students leave the institution). Student Success oversees the retention management system that is designed to identify students at risk and allows the office to provide appropriate academic interventions. Student Success also conducts all exit interviews with anyone who needs to withdraw from the College, take a leave of absence, or change their status (full-time to part-time, resident to commuter, etc.). The office collaborates with all departments across campus regarding the readmission of any student. We are here to facilitate student success and happiness.

The Student Support Center

The Student Support Center is available each semester for an additional fee. The Student Support Center offers professional learning consultation two hours per week to assist students develop appropriate learning strategies that will enable them to be in control of their own education.
