The Center for Student Success’ professional staff is pleased to offer services to both new and continuing students. Advisors are available by appointment to assist students with course advisement and a review of their major requirements, four-year plans, degree evaluations and graduation requirements. Students can also meet with our academic advisors to discuss studying off-campus, repeating courses and applying for course overloads. Located in D-wing 207, our staff is happy to offer guidance to those who need it whether it be questions about course schedules, major requirements, or just questions about making the transition to Ramapo College. Please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at (201) 684-7441 or by e-mail at
