Academic Support - Home

The Iona College athletic department's academic support program is a collaborative effort designed to assist student-athletes in achieving their academic, athletic, and career goals

The Athletics Department, the Counseling Center, and the Samuel Rudin Academic Resource Center have "teamed up" to support the holistic development of our student-athletes.
