At Binghamton University, CSTEP supports students in six disciplines including pre-law, pre-health, engineering, nursing, accounting, and psychology. The program fosters a cooperative learning environment with support services that enhance each student’s academic growth and professional potential.
CSTEP staff will assist you with career, personal, and academic advising and counseling, helping you to resolve problems, answer questions, or program plan.
CSTEP offers group or individual tutoring primarily in math, science, and technical classes. Some tutors hold office hours while others are available by appointment.
Each of the six disciplines covered by CSTEP has its own group which is used for peer support, mentoring, networking, career exploration, educational and socialization activities.
CSTEP sponsors workshops dealing with topics related to academic success such as: test taking strategies, math and science study skills, time management, stress management, writing and political advocacy skills. Attendance at professional conferences, field trips, or guest speakers is encouraged to increase knowledge about potential careers.
Students are paid an hourly wage to work with a professor in a laboratory setting, thereby gaining knowledge of the research process. Internships in other areas are also strongly encouraged. Assistance in obtaining them is provided.
CSTEP staff will assist students in developing plans to improve performance on licensure examinations as well as assist students with the application process for admission into graduate or professional school.
CSTEP staff will provide employment, scholarship or educational references for students who have been active participants in the CSTEP program.
