Undergraduate tutoring @ NYU
Academic Resource Center
It is located in NYU’s Washington Campus at 18 Washington Pl, New York, NY 10003. The various tools through which students are guided include:
Cross School Advising
NYU understands that students might feel overwhelmed about the loads of opportunities thrown at them and hence might feel confused. This helps them to talk to advisers of other areas who help them explore opportunities on the other side and clarify if they want to change paths. Throughout the year, academic advisers from across the University and from various programs will be present in the ARC for walk-in advising and information sessions. Students need not book appointments and can just walk in after checking the schedule to know which area they need advice on. Latest cross school advising schedule is available here.
