• Academic Success coaches are not academic advisors.

    Conversations with your academic advisor focus on planning your schedule for the semester and meeting departmental and university course requirements, and Academic Coaching focuses on the skills you’ll use to excel in those classes that you’ve chosen with your advisor.

What is Academic Coaching?

Have you ever studied for hours and still felt like you didn’t know the material or expected to get a good grade on a mid-term and been disappointed? Working with an Academic Coach can help you study smarter by developing skills in:

   Time and Life Management

   Goal Setting

  Test Preparation

  Learning Strategies

    Earning Strong Grades

Prepare for Your Appointment

Coaching sessions are tailored to meet individual needs and goals. For the best results, it is recommended that you:

  1. Prep before your session

    Give some thought to what roadblocks you may be facing, your primary concerns, and what you hope to accomplish during your coaching session

  2. Be an active participant

    It may be helpful to bring your calendar and class materials such as textbooks, notes, or your syllabus with you to the session.
