The Office of Student Success and Advisement Services supports you throughout your educational experience at Tompkins Cortland.

During START, you are introduced to a variety of campus resources and begin to learn about academic expectations with the goal of meeting each of our student learning outcomes for new students. Placement Testing is required for most incoming students. Testing and Scheduling START are crucial steps in the new student enrollment process.  New Student Orientation provides another opportunity for you to learn about campus culture and expectations right before the semester begins.

For continuing students, our office advises most part-time students, and also works with you if you fall below the College’s academic standards. We also offer a variety of advising resources to help with your academic planning.

If you don’t find the information you need, please email with questions any time.
