Center for Academic Success
The Center for Academic Success (CAS) aims to aid students in successfully meeting the rigors of the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing program. We operate an open door policy so as to provide free academic service to all enrolled students. The CAS coordinator can be reached at 315/470-5779 and is located in the CAS Room 333, Marley Education Center.
Students are assigned a faculty member who serves as an academic advisor. The advisor assists students in developing an academic plan and in managing the demands of the classroom and clinical activities.
Student Computer Lab
Located in room 418 on the 4th floor of the Marley Education Center, the student computer lab is accessible 24 hours a day using a student card swipe.
Crouse Hospital Library
On the 4th floor of the Marley Education Center, the library is an information center including a collection of over 5,000 books, journals and videos related to nursing and medicine, with 24-hour access to online databases and texts.
Individualized academic counseling
Students meet with the CAS coordinator three to four times during the semester to assess and discuss the student’s academic strengths and challenges. An academic or clinical intervention plan is personally designed to ensure student progress.
Faculty Facilitated Active Study Program (FFASP)
This active study program is student driven and provides them with an opportunity to clarify basic knowledge as well as enhance their critical thinking about the concepts taught in NUR 120 and NUR 280 courses. Sessions are offered weekly, and are an hour length. FFASP does not “re-teach” lectures; its intention is to foster student engagement and active learning.

Students with diagnosed disabilities are provided with the following academic accommodations:
Individualized academic counseling for dyadic and clinical classes
