Resources for Students
Pace University has a growing national reputation for offering students opportunity, teaching and learning based on research, civic involvement, an international perspective, and measurable outcomes. The university is proud of its personal approach to education. Lubin students are highly motivated individuals seeking to improve their lives, and the School's programs offer flexibility, accessibility, and convenience. A variety of academic resources are available on all campuses to help students realize their academic goals.
Lubin Office of Undergraduate Academic Advisement
The Lubin Office of Undergraduate Academic Advisement, located on both campuses, is a resource for Lubin students throughout their academic careers. Business majors (sophomores and transfer students) are assigned both a Lubin professional staff adviser and a faculty mentor in their major to guide them throughout their academic careers. Students who are initially undecided about their major are assigned a faculty mentor when they declare their major. The services of the advisement office are especially useful for students seeking general information regarding degree requirements and specific advice on such academic matters as selecting or changing major, transferring credits, withdrawing from a course and any other academic concerns or problems. The offices are also centers for information on Lubin activities and for referral to other University offices and departments. The Lubin Advisement Offices are located on the New York City campus (Section G, fourth floor, West Wing, One Pace Plaza Building) and on the Pleasantville campus (Goldstein Academic Center, first floor).
Law schools do not prescribe particular undergraduate programs as preparation for admission, but students should become aware of entrance requirements at specific schools they seek to enter. Admission to law school generally requires a competitive grade point average, as well as satisfactory performance on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
Students seeking to gain a better understanding of the legal system or in preparation for a career in law, are encouraged to pursue either the Law or the Pre-Law minor, which are outlined in the Lubin section on minors.
Pre-law Advisers are available within the Legal Studies department on each campus for consultation with students considering a legal career.
Pre-Law Advisers: The following Legal Studies faculty are registered with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) and available to provide guidance and advice on the Law School application process and answer questions about legal careers: New York City Campus: Professor Frank Colella (firstname.lastname@example.org); Westchester Campus: Professor Roy J. Girasa (email@example.com)

They also work with an upper class business major who is their UNV 101 peer leader and provides assistance and support from a student perspective and helps students to become involved with various student activities and organizations. Emphasis is also placed on helping freshmen, especially those who have not yet declared a major, to explore various major programs and related careers.
