The Student Success Center (SSC)

The Student Success Center (SSC) is designed to enrich learning opportunities through resources available to students at a distance or on campus. Modeled on best practices for excellence in teaching and learning, the SSC provides students with opportunities to extend and to deepen their classroom learning experiences by participating in academic advising, peer tutoring (focused on course content), basic skill strengthening, career counseling, and/or short-term personal counseling. Located on the 1st floor of the Academic Building in C127, the SSC strives to be a warm and welcoming community of learners dedicated to fostering student growth and success. Walk-in appointments are available daily; however, students are encouraged to make an appointment by calling 617-322-3579 or emailing in advance. 

Academic and Support Services

Labouré College is committed to extending reasonable and appropriate accommodations to students whose learning differences are consistent with standards described in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. To be eligible, students seeking accommodations will provide documentation from a licensed medical or behavioral health professional that describes a legally recognized learning difference and that indicates the accommodations necessary to assure equal access to the College's programs and services. This documentation should be submitted at the time of enrollment to ensure proper accommodations can be made. Access and Support Services are offered by the Student Success Center.

Student Retention Coordinator

Dedicated to ensuring students have equal opportunities for success, students are encouraged to review the weekly student success workshops available on-ground with the Student Retention Coordinator. Workshops include professional nursing reviews, testing strategies, study techniques, reading effectiveness, time management, and more. The schedule of workshops is published in the weekly student newsletter, and available in the Student Success Center. 

Academic Success Planning (My Academic Plan - MAP)

Labouré College is committed to ensuring that students have the best opportunity to achieve their academic and career goals. Therefore, an individual My Academic Plan (MAP) may be created based on each student's academic background, institutional completion data, and conversation with an assigned academic advisor. These requirements are designed to assist students in the successful completion of their desired programs of study. The Department of Admissions will inform students at the point of acceptance and/or placement testing if they are required to have a MAP. Students who are not required to have a MAP may request a MAP if desired.  

Student Government Association (SGA)

Beginning in 2018. the Student Government Association works to represent all academic programs as a student voice. Elections are held each Spring semester for the upcoming academic year. The SGA works with the Student Nursing Association (SNA) to provide support for student-sponsored events and to serve as a place students can submit ideas to as it relates to promoting new resources at the College. Visit the Student Success Center on the "Student" tab at for more information. 

National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA)

The National Student Nurses’ Association (NSNA) is the pre-professional organization for nursing students enrolled in associate degree and bachelor’s degree programs. The NSNA mission is to organize, represent, and mentor students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses, promote development of the skills necessary to be responsible and accountable members of the Nursing profession, and develop Nursing leaders who are prepared to move forward the profession in the future. The College’s chapter of the NSNA welcomes new members during each semester. Officers are elected annually.
