Tap into the Resources Needed to Succeed at Stonehill College
In the graduate programs at Stonehill, academic/faculty advisors provide comprehensive, holistic and personalized assistance to support students through all aspects of the academic experience.
Faculty advisors work in tandem with the graduate program director to confirm that students are accurately and appropriately informed and guided. Guidance in the areas of course/degree requirements, selection, registration and completion is administered by the graduate program director and is consistent with the College’s faculty advising model for undergraduate students.
Supplemental advising and support in the areas of academic policy, progress and integrity is led by the Office of Academic Services & Advising. The department also supports students with supplemental services associated with academic skill development, interest exploration and advocacy.
The Office of Accessibility Resources (OAR) supports Stonehill’s commitment to providing a welcoming, supportive and inclusive environment for students with disabilities. Within its existing structure, the OAR will work with graduate students to ensure equal access to all aspects of campus life. Through an interactive process, the OAR will assist students in identifying strategies, resources and accommodations to help mitigate disability-related barriers.
The Career Development Center is well-positioned in a variety of fields and able to provide career guidance as well as to make introductions to local alumni and employers in the field.
The Center for Writing and Academic Achievement (CWAA) provides academic support services in a welcoming, professional environment that emphasizes collaborative learning and peer tutoring, supplemented with professional-level support. For students in our Graduate Programs, the CWAA offers Professional Writing Tutoring on an appointment-only basis. The CWAA is located in MacPhaidin Library, Room 314. Graduate Students are encouraged to contact the CWAA with any questions at CWAAfirstname.lastname@example.org. The hours for Professional Tutoring will vary by semester. Students can visit the CWAA website to view schedules and make appointments http://www.stonehill.edu/offices-services/cwaa/for-students/.
The MacPháidín Library offers resources to meet the unique needs of students enrolled in graduate programs. The library provides access to several electronic database resources (such as the ScienceDirect database) as well as print and eBook collections and Interlibrary Loan texts. In addition, the program’s students will be offered opportunities to sharpen their technology and research skills to help them optimize time spent engaging with the library’s resources while enrolled in the program.
Each student enrolled in a graduate program will be given Stonehill account credentials that grant access to the campus network, applications, software and technology services. Additionally, students will be provided an account in our Office 365 suite, which includes a Stonehill email address, OneDrive file storage, Office applications for their personal computers as well as other online, collaborative tools. Graduate courses will utilize our Blackboard Learn learning management system, where students may access syllabi and course content, take assessments, submit assignments, view course grades and interact with their faculty and classmates. Students will also have access to software in computer labs on campus as well as options for downloading or individually procuring software, such as Creative Cloud and IBM Watson Analytics, to enable them to work off campus.
At this time, Stonehill College offers housing only to our full-time undergraduate students.
