Welcome to the University Learning Center (ULC), where New School students can receive academic support in areas including writing, math (PDF), ESL, and graduate writing. The ULC also holds regular workshops aimed at improving students' writing and other academic skills.

Our writing sessions support development through constructive feedback and technical guidance, designed to help students clarify their ideas and evaluate their work. The ULC is not a proofreading or editing service; rather, our tutors work with students to identify areas that need improvement and offer advice about making adjustments.

Explore our website to see all that the ULC has to offer or, better yet, drop in for a tour. The ULC is located at 66 West 12th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) on the sixth floor.

ULC Scheduler Instructions:

Step 1: Log in to Starfish CONNECT™.

Step 2: Click "Services," located at the top of the screen.

Step 3: You will see a list titled Academic Resources; choose the Learning Center service that works best for you: ESL, General Tutoring, Graduate Writing, or Math.

Step 4: To schedule an appointment, use the "Schedule Online" link that appears next to the description of the service. If you wish to work with a specific tutor, choose the "Schedule Online" button next to his or her name. 

Step 5: Choose the day and time that work best for you, then click "Sign Up." You must click "Submit" to complete your reservation. You will immediately receive a confirmation email from Starfish; if you do not receive one, the appointment was not booked.

Please make only one appointment on the scheduler at a time. Once your session ends, you can then schedule another appointment. This policy is in place to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to book appointments with us.
