Tutoring and Student Success Services

Tutoring, advisement, mentoring and other academic support services are abundant on campus. The College will continue to provide this vital assistance while ensuring the health and safety of students, faculty and staff.

Veterans Success Center

Manhattan College has a longstanding commitment to those who have served in our nation’s armed forces. The on-campus Veterans Success Center offers mutual and academic support, a strong sense of community, and other services for student-veterans. The College will continue to provide these benefits in a manner that ensures our students’ health and safety.
