Academic Support Programs

Academic Success Coaching

Through a series of one-on-one appointments, you can work with a coach to get from where you are now academically to where you want to be, and create a foundation for success in college. Coaching focuses on the overall academic experience instead of individual subjects. It is not academic advising, personal counseling, a disciplinary meeting, or individual tutoring.

Get started

Begin by meeting with one of our coaches. Our coaches are available to meet in-person or virtually through Zoom. Each appointment will be thirty minutes long.

Schedule an appointment

What can I expect a coaching session to look like?

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!
