There are many offices at Pratt that can help you (directly or indirectly) as you navigate writing your thesis! Find information on these offices and their contact information here.

The Learning/Access Center provides comprehensive academic support services to all Pratt students who are working toward academic success. At the L/AC students have the opportunity to work with professional and/or peer academic coaches and tutors. Academic coaching includes time management, study skills, reading skills and brainstorming for projects. Learn about the accommodations and services the L/AC offers  by clicking here.

  • Reach the L/AC by phone at 718.802.3123.
  • Reach the L/AC by email at LAC@pratt.edu
  • L/AC hours are Monday–Thursday, 9 AM–6 PM; Friday 9 AM–5 PM.

The Writing and Tutorial Center (WTC) offers one-on-one tutoring sessions with experienced academic professionals. These hour-long appointments generally begin with a conversation between you and the tutor regarding your goals, the specifics of your assignment, and your concerns. Please note, the WTC is not an editing or proofreading service. Do not expect your tutor to simply make grammatical corrections on your paper and then give it back to you. Tutors are there to help guide you through your writing, but you must be fully engaged in the process and make any changes to your work yourself, pen-in-hand, during the session.

  • Reach the WTC by phone at 718.636.3459
  • Reach the WTC by email at wtc@pratt.edu.
  • WTC hours are Monday–Thursday 10 AM–8PM; Friday 10 AM–5 PM.

The Counseling Center offers confidential counseling services to all enrolled Pratt students by licensed mental health professionals. When you contact Counseling Services, you will be offered the earliest appointment available. Following an initial assessment, short-term individual therapy or group therapy with one of our staff therapists may be recommended; alternatively, a staff therapist may determine that your needs would be best served by a referral to an off-campus treatment provider. Staff therapists will try their best to accommodate your service requests but ultimately must use their professional judgment to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.

  • Reach the Counseling Center by phone at 718.687.5356 (you can call this number 24/7)
  • Reach the Counseling Center by email at therapy@pratt.edu.
