My Iona

Office of Student Success

You’re not alone – we’re here to help!

Through academic counseling and personal support, the Office of Student Success strives to assist students in their adjustment to academic life. We are here to listen and talk through challenges students may face, whether they be academic, social or personal, and provide outreach to students who are struggling with academics and attendance in order to assist them in getting back on track.

The Office of Student Success can guide you toward and connect you with the resources, programs and services that promote a successful transition towards graduation. We work closely with the Samuel Rudin Academic Resource Center, the College Assistance Program, the Accessibility Services Office, the Counseling Center, Career Development and the Advising Center.

Together, we help ensure that students reach their full potential and cultivate the necessary skills to become lifelong learners.
