Coming to college is an exciting part of your son's or daughter’s life, and Pace strives to help its students achieve success throughout their time with us. If at any time a student needs assistance, both our campuses offer services throughout the academic year.
ASPIRE – Students, faculty, staff, and alumni make up the ASPIRE program’s volunteer network. The program aims to not only tell the Pace story through the voices of students and staff, but to help first-year students ease into college life. Student volunteers act as a peer adviser through the PALS program: Each year, new Pace students are paired with a current Pace upperclassman who is able to answer questions and help students adjust to their first year on campus.
Campus Safety & Security – Pace’s Safety & Security staff makes every effort to provide a secure environment for our students. All Pace-owned buildings are staffed with 24-hour security employees, and require students to show a Pace ID whenever they enter a facility. The Safety & Security staff also provides a free escort service to all students between any two points on campus between dusk and dawn.
Center for Academic Excellence – The tutoring center within the Center for Academic Excellence helps students achieve their academic goals by offering individualized and small-group tutoring in a wide range of subjects. Walk-in services are free to all Pace students.
Computer Resource Centers – Located throughout the New York and Westchester campuses are computer labs available for students to perform coursework and other computing needs. The New York City lab houses 105 computers, 5 printers, and 4 scanners; the Westchester lab houses 84 computers, 4 printers, and 3 scanners. The labs also include more than 50 software packages, Internet access, wireless workstations for laptops, and direct assistance from I.T. staff.
Counseling Center – With locations at both campuses, Pace’s Counseling Center is there for students in need of help either inside or outside the classroom. The center offers personal counseling (for personal or emotional difficulties), educational counseling (study skills, time management), and vocational counseling (for help in choosing a major or career path). All services are free and confidential.
Disability Services – Students with disabilities have access to an array of special services to help them achieve academically. If your son or daughter has received special services for a disability in the past and you are interested in learning more about the resources Pace offers, please call the Office of Disability Services on their prospective campus.

Student Development and Campus Activities (SDCA) – In addition to exceptional academics, Pace also prides itself on a student body committed to campus involvement. The SDCA facilitates student leadership and community-building through clubs, organizations, and other campus-wide programs.

Study Spaces – During final examinations, Pace opens selected areas throughout the university as designated study spaces. These areas, located primarily in libraries, dining areas, and student unions, are quiet zones where students can study for exams without distractions.
The Writing Center – Pace students may use the Writing Center’s one-on-one student tutors if they need additional help in finishing papers or essays, or just want feedback. All services are free and available any time the Writing Center is open.
Cooperative Education and Career Services – Pace offers students a lifetime membership to the Cooperative Education and Career Services program. Using Pace's resources, students may obtain internships, attend resume-writing and business interview sessions, access the Pace alumni database, and much more.
