Welcome students! In addition to attending class, you are welcome to study at the Graduate Center in groups, or individually, during business hours or as arranged with the TCGC coordinator. Business hours vary based on classes and activities scheduled at the Center. Contact the TCGC coordinator for additional information.
We recommend that you activate your StarID and obtain an SCSU Campus Card as soon as possible. Your StarID is your key to SCSU’s technology, including e-mail, campus wired and wireless networks, Desire2Learn (D2L), and more. Visit the StarID activation page for more information. Campus Cards are required for printing at the Graduate Center, and they are a useful tool for a variety of other SCSU services. See the Technical Services page for more information about obtaining your Campus Card.
