New Student Experience Center

New Student Experience Center

The New Student Experience Center (NSEC) is the campus home for first year students who have not yet decided on an academic major, and for students who are completing requirements for entry into one of City College's professional schools.   We provide our students with individualized academic advisement, career/major exploration events, college survival skills workshops and the support necessary to be successful. Each NSEC student is assigned an advisor that they will work with during their time with us.  This allows the advisor and student to develop a relationship and allows the advisor to give each student the support they need.

The transition to college can be stressful. There are new rules, new expectations, new responsibilities, and many new people. The NSEC helps to reduce this stress and provide new students with resources, support, and peer community to make this transition a smooth one.  As we say, “We've got your back!”




6/4/2018: Summer Academic Planning Days begin Friday June 8th.  Please be aware that advisors will be devoting most of their time to new students during June and August.
