Learning Center

The college makes every effort to provide the academic support that is needed for all students to thrive in their classes.

The NYCI Learning Center provides personalized tutoring services to students to help them improve and master skills that will help them succeed in their particular subject area/program of study.

The Learning Center is staffed by professional instructors. Students can sign up in advance for tutorial services in any subject area and receive specific assistance to help them grasp concepts or materials that they feel they need assistance in. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize all academic support services that are available to them in order to get the most out of their academic experience at the college.

Additional information about the NYCI Learning Center can be obtained from the Director of Student Services or the Dean of Academic Affairs.

Mentor Program

The first term in college is often the most challenging for students. Making the transition from high school to college can be difficult. In addition, many students who attend NYCI are adults who are returning to a classroom setting after an extended absence.

In order to help students make this transition, NYCI has a long established mentor program at the college. All new incoming students are assigned a staff or faculty member as their mentor. Mentors help guide students to locate and make use of academic and administrative support services during this period. In many cases, the relationships that are established during the first term between mentor and mentee last throughout the students’ time at the college.

Additional information about the mentor program can be obtained from the Director of Student Services.

Student Financial Services

A key component of a post-secondary education is how students choose to fund their studies. NYCI prides itself on the personal attention that is given to our students in this area. Our “Open Door Policy” enables students to see a Financial Aid Counselor or the Bursar at any time in order to obtain vital information about educational funding including grants, student loans, Veteran’s benefits, payment plans and other funding options. We routinely counsel students one on one to ensure that they receive the information that is pertinent to their individual situation.

Most importantly, affordability and graduating from NYCI with as little debt as possible is our priority and we work diligently to ensure that all students are well informed so that they can make the best decisions regarding the funding of their education.

Specific information about financial aid and payment plans can be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid or the Bursar.

Bookstore

NYCI maintains a bookstore so that students can easily obtain their textbooks through the college, in many cases using their financial aid to purchase their books. We also supply textbook information to students enabling them to purchase books outside of the college. This includes used, new and textbooks that can be rented for a specific period of time.

Student Activities

The college organizes a variety of extracurricular activities and events that many students participate in. These activities are all intended to enrich the college experience for our students as well as foster a sense of community and support with charitable organizations.
