Student Success Collaborative

Who Can Help?

At Hofstra, each student is assigned an individual success team. Your personalized success team is available throughout your time at Hofstra and is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. Below are some situations you may encounter and who is best suited to provide support.

Every student is assigned an advising dean within the Center for University Advising (CUA) based on their major. From New Student Orientation through graduation, your advising dean is available to help you navigate academic requirements and provide information about other majors of interest.

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) is the best place to go when you need help with your academic work. The Center provides time management workshops, tutoring in both one-on-one and group sessions, stress management activities, and many other resources to help you do your best academically.

Student Access Services provides academic accommodations and support for students with disabilities. If you are registered with their office, you will have a staff member designated to work with you through your time at Hofstra.

Every residence hall at Hofstra is overseen by a member of staff from the Office of Residence Life. These staff members, known as Resident Directors, are available for many situations, including roommate conflicts, housing concerns, and receiving mail.

Commuter Students can refer to the Office of Commuting Student Services and Community Outreach for assistance with living off-campus. This includes providing resources and information for living off-campus, as well as events throughout the semester to meet other commuting students.

The designated staff member from Student financial Services is available to you to discuss payment options for college, including financial aid and payment plans through the University.
