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 email@example.com to find a time that works best for you.
Coaching Session: Academic Success Coaching sessions are available for all students at the University of Washington.

My motivation for online courses is that I am still learning the same interesting things, just in a different environment. If you are interested in what you are doing, it doesn’t matter the roadblocks you encounter, you will still find a way to succeed. So, I keep this mindset even on the days that are more challenging. It can definitely get frustrating being online all the time, so I usually balance out the stress with some physical activity like going on walks, working out at home, or playing basketball at the park. To be honest, since I commute from West Seattle and the West Seattle Bridge is closed now, I would’ve had to drop my 8:30am marketing class because of traffic if school was still in session at UW. That would’ve been awful because it’s a class that I wanted to take. So sometimes life throws you obstacles, and it’s up to you if you see it as adversity or opportunity.—Zak Nyberg, He/His
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.
