2019-2020 Student Handbook

Welcome from the Senior Vice President for Student Life and Enrollment Management

Welcome to Utica College!

You have made a great choice in choosing to attend Utica College!  You are now a Pioneer.  Utica College provides you, our student, with a wide range of learning opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom. We encourage you to take full advantage of what Utica College has to offer. While your college experience here will be, and should be, a time of excitement and exploration, don’t be surprised if you encounter some stress and uncertainty as you try to balance the challenges of your academic, co-curricular, and work commitments. Our faculty and staff are here to help you integrate these experiences as you develop new interests, skills and competencies.

The Student Handbook is your guide to the broad range of student support services and resources available to you, as well as providing information about opportunities for being fully involved at Utica College. Many college policies and procedures, including those outlining our expectations for student conduct, our community standards, and related responsibilities, are also outlined here. As a member of our learning community, you are expected to become familiar with and adhere to these policies, procedures and guidelines.

Throughout the handbook, you will find links to appropriate pages on the Utica College Web site, including the Utica College catalog, to ensure you are accessing the most updated information.  The Student Handbook is divided into several sections:

  • Academic Offices, Programs, and Related Resources
  • Getting Involved:  Life Outside of the Classroom
  • Finances and Financial Resources
  • Health and Safety
  • Living and Dining on Campus
  • Other Campus Offices and Services
  • Policies, Procedures, Rules and Regulations
  • Where to Go for Information and Assistance
  • What to See and Where to Stay in Central New York
  • Commonly Called Numbers

It is our promise that we will inspire you to create for yourself a future that’s beyond your imagining.  This begins with you becoming actively engaged in contributing to the quality of life at Utica College by participating in campus events and organizations, community service, and student leadership roles. Utilize all of the resources and opportunities available to you, and make the most of your time at Utica!

Most campus offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  However, should you have questions or concerns outside of these hours, faculty and staff often can be contacted via email!  If you live on campus, you can also contact a member of the Residence Life staff.  For emergencies, call Campus Safety at 315-792-3046 or by dialing 611 on campus.
