Baruch College offers a number of helpful resources for our students. View them below.
The Newman Library provides all students with a range of services beyond the borrowing of physical and eBooks, such as scanning and printing services, technology loans, and access to study rooms. In addition, graduate students arrange a research consultation with Baruch librarians.
The Library also has a Higher Education Research Guide that showcases current higher education books, journals, and databases in the field as well as education policy institutes, organizations and government agencies. The Guide provides a wealth of information that is useful for the class projects and staying up-to-date in the field.

Baruch’s Counseling Center provides free and confidential services to anyone who is currently enrolled and registered as an undergraduate or graduate student at Baruch College.
Student Disability Services provides appropriate accommodations to students with disabilities to promote equal access to the college’s programs and services. This is accomplished by creating an accessible college environment for students with disabilities and providing assistive technology that empowers students to self-advocate and develop the skills necessary to succeed academically.
All students have a Baruch email account that is provided through Baruchmail. First, claim your Baruch username and Baruchmail account. Accessing your account is important as it is the email address used by the College for all communication. Students should check their Baruch student email frequently for the weekly advisement newsletter, updates on course scheduling, and changes in academic policies.
CUNYfirst which stands for Fully Integrated Resources and Services Tool, allows students to manage their academic careers and financial accounts in real time. It is the system students use to view the course catalogue and schedule of classes as well as register and drop and add classes. Grades and transcripts are also accessed on CUNYFirst. In addition, students can manage their financial accounts including bill payment and financial aid.
Blackboard is the learning management system used by Baruch. Blackboard allows students to participate in classes delivered online or use online materials and activities to complement face-to-face teaching. The degree to which Blackboard is used in class depends on the faculty member teaching your course. The User’s Guide is an important resource for students on how to get the most out of Blackboard as is the Help Desk’s answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
Degree Works is a web-based application that allows students to view their progress towards a degree. It lists students’ course requirements including courses taken, courses currently being taken, and courses needed to complete the degree.
