As you set out on the adventure that is your undergraduate experience, we hope your time at Suffolk is filled with academic discoveries, life-changing travels, career-enhancing internships, and friendships that will endure long after you graduate. This is your time to take control of your University experience and explore all that our campus has to offer.
While you’ll be able to explore your own path at Suffolk, you’ll never be alone. Suffolk always offers a vast array of resources that will help enrich your student experience.
Center for Learning and Academic Success
The Center for Learning and Academic Success provides free tutoring, academic coaching, workshops, and other resources that empower students to reach their full academic potential. The Center also coordinates Suffolk’s Early Alert Project and offers the University Achievement Program, Academic Improvement Program, and College Level Examination Program.
Known around campus as Student Accounts, the Bursar’s Office is the place to go for any questions related to paying your tuition or other related Suffolk fees.
Suffolk University faculty, staff, and students are committed to understanding and supporting the particular needs and rights of individuals, and ensuring they are fully able to participate in University life. This office assists students with physical, psychiatric, sensory, medical, learning, and/or other disabilities.
Review your responsibilities as a new student with a disability and read the Disability Services handbook to learn more.
Diversity Services works to engage the entire Suffolk community in greater awareness and understanding of diversity issues—including race and ethnicity, gender, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religious orientation, international concerns, gender identity and expression, age, disability, and Vietnam-era or disabled veteran status.
All members of the Suffolk community are encouraged to participate in the initiatives and programs sponsored by Diversity Services.
Health, Wellness, and Counseling
If you’re feeling unwell or have questions about your general health, stop in to Health, Wellness, and Counseling Services.
And don’t forget to complete a Health History and Immunization Form and enroll or waive participation in the Suffolk Student Health Insurance Plan (SSHIP) before your Orientation.
The Interfaith Center is the home of religious life at Suffolk. It serves as an ethical voice on campus, an educational advocate for students, and as a resource for counseling and spiritual guidance to students, faculty, and administrators.
Math/Computer Science Support
If you have math anxiety or questions on coding, this campus resource is the place to go. In addition to administering the math placement exam for all incoming students, the support center, now a part of the Center for Learning and Academic Success, offers drop-in math help sessions for individuals and small groups, individual help by appointment, and tutoring for those taking select computer science classes.
No matter your background or major, Performing Arts is committed to providing opportunities for all members of the University community to participate in the performing arts. To learn more about how students get involved, visit us in person or, better yet, check out an upcoming performance.
The friendly folks in the Registrar’s Office can help you navigate course registration (and even how to place yourself on a waitlist for closed courses) via MySuffolk. You can also find the College’s undergraduate catalog and the Business School’s undergraduate catalog online.
Student Financial Services
Visit us to get help with financing your education. That office can also connect you with your specific financial aid counselor.
Student Leadership and Involvement
Get involved! This office provides a wealth of co-curricular opportunities that promote student engagement and success, nurture an ethic of service and good citizenship, recognize diversity as a core community value, and encourage positive transitions for new students. Consider taking The Journey, a four-year comprehensive experience that inspires Suffolk’s emerging student leaders.
As a Suffolk student, you can enhance your education in Boston with overseas study at Suffolk University’s Madrid Campus or at one of our many partner universities. You can study abroad for a semester or an academic year. Additionally, our faculty-led courses over the winter and spring breaks let you earn credit in a shorter amount of time.
Suffolk University has an award-winning sustainability program, and you can help us become even Earth-friendlier.
Suffolk offers students a wide range of technology services—from email accounts and wireless Internet access to computer labs, learning systems and discount programs for student computer and software purchases. To protect your access to all these services be sure you understand Suffolk's online security, email and computer use policies as described in your Student Handbook.
If you have not done so already, you must have a final high school transcript sent directly to this office. Any students who have taken college-level classes during high school must also have an official college transcript sent. Failure to do so may affect your course registration and any financial aid awards.
Visit this campus resource, a part of the Center for Learning and Academic Success, if you need help with a writing assignment—from brainstorming ideas to developing your thesis statement and improving your grammar and punctuation. One of their specially trained tutors will offer you one-on-one advice and encouragement.
