The College offers an extensive network of services to support students inside and outside of the classroom. Resources include Student Advising, Career Services, the Counseling Center, and International Student Assistance.
Additional academic support may be obtained from the Division of Innovative Learning and Academic Support Services.
Upon your arrival at ACPHS, you will be assigned a faculty member, or advisor, who will help guide you through your academic career. Students in years one through five are required to meet with their academic advisors at least once each semester. Your academic advisor will provide direction on matters such as course selection, research, and leadership opportunities. First-year students are also assigned to a professional advisor who assists with specific first-year student needs, such as successfully transitioning to college life and learning the necessary skills for academic success. Please direct any advising questions to Martin Green or Luke Schmonsky in the Office of Student Affairs. Their offices are located in Room 309 of the Library Building.
The Career Services office provides current students with instruction in career education, planning and development. The staff works with academic departments, alumni, and employers to teach students the methods of career research that will empower them to develop life-long career planning and job search skills.
Employers are encouraged to contact the College with regards to employment opportunities or with questions about events, such as career panels and the annual Career Fair. Employers may also visit the ACPHS Career Zone to post employment, internship, residency, and/or fellowship opportunities.
The Capital Region Career Consortium website is another resource for employers who seek to hire students and graduates from ACPHS and other area colleges and universities.
The Counseling Center
offers wellness and mental health services to students and their families, as well as faculty and staff. Services include individual, group and family therapy for a variety of issues, including mood and anxiety disorders; adjustment and interpersonal problems; stress related difficulties; eating disorders; and many other concerns. These services are free, and all counseling, consultations and referrals are kept strictly confidential, in accordance with legal and professional guidelines.
More than ten percent of ACPHS students are from outside the United States. The Office of Intercultural Affairs and Diversity works to foster a global understanding and outreach for all students, develop advising strategies for international students in collaboration with ACPHS's Academic Advising Office, implement Early Orientation Programs (EOP) for international students and provide oversight of the student immigration and visa process.
