• Get Support from an SSM: Visit the Virtual FYS Lab

    Students enrolled in a First Year Seminar course can make an appointment with an SSM using their My LaGuardia page. Select the “RSVP” button under Meet with a Student Success Mentor. From here, you’ll have the option to select either an in-person or virtual appointment. Upon scheduling your appointment, you will receive an email to your LaGuardia student email address confirming the appointment time and location:

    • For virtual appointments: The location will be a unique Zoom link. Please join the Zoom meeting at the time of your appointment.
    • For in-person appointments: The location will be a room number on-campus. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of your appointment! Upon arriving, please wait at the door. The SSM will invite you in at the start of your appointment.

    Appointments are 30 minutes in length. If you feel that you need more than 30 minutes, you are encouraged to schedule another appointment. If you need help using your My LaGuardia page, check out this brief instructional video.


    Two important notes for students regarding both the in-person and virtual FYS Lab:

    • Attending a virtual lab session with an SSM is not an alternative to attending your First Year Seminar Studio Hour lab. You are still required to attend the weekly Studio Hour sessions with your SSM.
    • SSMs are selected to provide support in the First Year Seminar lab based on their availability. You may not necessarily receive an appointment with your SSM. However, all SSMs are trained and knowledgeable of the First Year Seminar course and ePortfolio.
    • If you need to change your appointment, please email us at SSM@lagcc.cuny.edu.
