Academic Support

The purpose of the Office of Academic Support Programs is to foster a better learning environment for, and provide resources to all students at New York Medical College. Programs are designed to help students study more effectively and become more self-sufficient and proactive in their learning. These programs include: peer learning partners, workshops given periodically to address study techniques, a study partner match service, one-on-one academic support advice and assistance in making study plans, standardized test preparation lectures and workshops, and writing assistance.

The Office of Academic Support also evaluates and processes all applications from students seeking appropriate and reasonable accommodation by the College as stated in the Institution's Policy on Students with Disabilities and Application for Accomodations.  The office will provide support to students who identify themselves as needing special accommodations, per the ADA, and communicate those needs to the dean and course directors.
