The Student Success Center

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, tutoring through TutorMe - a virtual tutoring platform, course specific tutors via Zoom or on campus, basic skill strengthening, career counseling, and/or short-term personal counseling to help direct your next steps. The SSC strives to be a warm and welcoming community of learners dedicated to fostering student growth and success. Students are not assigned a specific advisor. Students requesting a meeting with an advisor are encouraged to email to set up a meeting with the Advisor on Duty that day. Virtual and walk-in appointments are available daily during normal business hours; however, students are encouraged to make an appointment by calling 617-322-3579 or emailing in advance.


Normal business hours for the Student Success Center are:

  • Monday - Friday: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

You can reach the SSC at 617-322-3579 or
