Just as a sports coach encourages you to achieve your goals, our coaches help you identify and overcome academic challenges. Academic Success Coaching focuses on building the basic skills described below and is not academic advising, personal counseling, a disciplinary meeting, or individual tutoring. Through a series of one-on-one appointments, you will work with your coach to get from where you are now academically to where you want to be, and create a secure foundation for success in college.
Due to COVID-19, Success Coaching will be offered entirely virtually for winter quarter 2021.
Begin by scheduling an appointment with one of our coaches. Each appointment will be thirty minutes in length and conducted via Zoom or phone. Details will be sent to your email after you schedule an appointment. Please confirm your current time zone by choosing your respective time zone under the calendar when scheduling an appointment. If the available times do not work for your schedule, please contact email@example.com to find a time that works best for you.
Having a morning routine. I set my alarm for the same time each day and then get out of bed and make myself a cup of tea while listening to NPR. It's a great way to get into the "I'm going to class" headspace even if you're not physically heading to campus.—Eli, Reinstatement Coach, They/Them
Our program is aimed at overcoming academic challenges and fostering academic success. There is a complementary UW program offered by our partners in LiveWell called Peer Wellness Coaching. It is dedicated to health and wellness topics, skills, and development.
We also partner with the Center for International Relations & Cultural Leadership Exchange (CIRCLE) to provide a CIRCLE success coach. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
