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, Academic Success Coaching will be offered entirely virtually for summer 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 in a confirmation email. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to find a time that works best for you.
We will be open for summer coaching appointments until Friday, September 17th and will re-open for Fall Quarter on September 29th.

If you would like to learn more about the success strategies we offer in coaching sessions, attend one of our workshops! ASP hosts multiple workshops each quarter on various topics from study strategies to self-care. Keep an eye on our workshop page for newly added workshops and updates!
Every coaching session is personalized for you and depends on what you want to talk with an Academic Success Coach about. Coaches typically try to get to know you and what your current strategies for balancing your academics are. Coaches will ask you a few questions about your habits and work with you to find potential areas of change or growth. Our hope is that this is an interactive process where coaches work with you to reach your academic goals. It is okay if you don’t know where to start. We are here to help! Coaches will share strategies and various resources based on the conversation. In addition, they will help connect you with any campus resources that would be most helpful for you.
Yourself and any questions you have! You do not need to have all of your questions prepared ahead of time as coaches are available to talk about anything that is most important to you. If you would like to connect with another peer at UW, our coaches are available to chat with you. If you do have specific questions, please feel free to bring those to your session and let the coach know what you would like to talk about.
During fall quarter, Academic Success Coaches are available for both virtual and in-person appointments. In-person appointments will take place in Mary Gates Hall. Virtual appointments will be through Zoom. Coaching appointments can be scheduled by using our scheduling link. You can schedule an appointment with any of our coaches. Above, you can read more about each coach or watch a video introduction to learn about their major, career goals, and interests. All of our coaches would love to meet with you, but if you see something that resonates with you, feel free to make an appointment with a specific coach. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
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.
