Prospective Student Visits to Banacos Academic Center

Visiting Banacos Academic Center

Welcome to Westfield State University and the Banacos Academic Center. 

We encourage prospective students to attend one of our informal information sessions during the busier parts of the semester. Information sessions will occur on select Mondays during the Spring semester and on select Mondays and Fridays in the Fall semester.  Additional sessions will occur during Admissions Junior Week.

At our session you will learn about the wonderful supports available through Disability Services and the Learning Disabilities Program. You will also learn about the other academic supports you can receive at the Center and at Westfield State University.

Please fill out the Banacos Academic Center Information Session Sign Up form. If you are unable to attend one of the sessions listed, or if sessions are not available at that time, please considering setting a time to speak on the phone to discuss your questions by writing to

Please note that during September, October, late January and early February we are especially focused on advising current students and are unlikely to be available outside of the scheduled information session times scheduled. At the end of each semester, we focus on helping students manage exams and final projects.

Banacos Academic Center staff is available at on-campus Admission events, too. Many families find that meeting us at these events provides sufficient answers to their questions. Please take advantage of the campus tours available through the Office of Admissions.  The tour guides are great sources of information about the Banacos Academic Staff.  Several of them take advantage of our services. 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
