The Center’s primary mission is to help students succeed during their college years and beyond by helping them develop as active, independent learners.
The Writing Center
The Writing Center offers free support to all Baruch students; you can meet with a professional writing consultant one-to-one (by video, audio, and text-based chat) and in small-group workshops. The Center’s consultants will work collaboratively with you to deepen your writing and English language skills. At any step in the process, they’ll help you become a more independent, confident, and versatile writer. You’re encouraged to schedule your appointment well in advance of when your writing is due.
Tools for Clear Speech (TfCS)
The Tools for Clear Speech (TfCS) program improves the pronunciation, fluency, and pragmatic abilities of English language learners (ELLs) and non-native English speakers at Baruch College. Participants achieve more effective and intelligible communication, developing skills that empower them to succeed in their classrooms, careers, and beyond. TfCS offers a range of free face-to-face services with professional Speech Consultants, including One-to-One Sessions, small-group Focused Skills Series sessions, large-group Overview Workshops, and a weekly Conversation Hour. In addition, participants can find extensive practice materials on our online platform Tools To-Go, and through our program podcast, Just to Be Clear. TfCS is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at Baruch (and faculty).
Student Emergency Grants
Emergency grants are available for the purpose of providing quick response emergency grants to students in good standing with short-term financial emergencies, to enable them to remain in school, rather than being forced to take a leave of absence or drop out. In addition to helping with short-term emergencies, students can also apply for support from the Immigrant Student Emergency Fund which is designed to help students with various immigration needs stemming from immigration status and/or undocumented status. The grant is designed to help students improve their status and quality of life following a financial emergency.

The Counseling Center provides free and confidential services to anyone who is currently enrolled and registered as an undergraduate or graduate student at Baruch College. Through culturally-responsive and trauma-informed counseling and psychological services and outreach, the Counseling Center assists students in achieving their academic and personal goals. Counselors work collaboratively with students to improve their emotional well-being, balance priorities, enhance interpersonal relationships, and empower them with useful coping skills to attain success in and out of the classroom.
Office of Undergraduate Advisement and Orientation
Academic advising can help you stay on track for success! The advisement staff is available to assist students in understanding matters relating to academic requirements, policies, and procedures.
Student Disability Services (SDS)
Accommodations to remove barriers due to a disability are individualized and determined on a case-by-case basis. If you are an individual with a disability, have a mental health diagnosis, have a learning disability, or have a chronic medical condition, you can officially request accommodations through Student Disability Services (SDS), which is part of Baruch’s Division of Student Affairs. A student with a disability can self-identify by visiting SDS, requesting reasonable accommodations, and if requested provide documentation of their disability to Student Disability Services. A few typical accommodations are Additional Time for Exams; a Less Distracting Environment to Take an Exam; and Assistive Technology loans from SDS to remove barriers which may exist due to a disability.
The Baruch College Student Health Care Center provides students with a full range of clinical health services, including initial diagnosis and treatment for a broad spectrum of illnesses and injuries. When necessary, referrals will be made. The Health Care Center is committed to providing consistent, high quality health services to Baruch students in a culturally sensitive and confidential environment.
William & Anita Newman Library
The library is a great place to study on campus, but there is much more available than just books. You can borrow technology, reserve a study room, scan, print, and get support with your research projects.
Baruch College Honors Program
The Honors Program invites students to join Honors once at Baruch through the general education-focused Provost Scholar program or the research-based Inquiry Scholar program. Honors courses encompass Macaulay Honors courses and Honors sections of regular courses.
