Academic Coaching

Academic Coaching:

  • is a short-term (one-semester) support service that assists students on an individual basis.
  • provides a trusting relationship and environment that allows students to examine how their decision making strategies can lead to academic success.
  • helps students identify their personal strengths as well as introduce them to new suggestions for success, especially in regard to learning strategies and metacognition.
  • allows students to practice personal responsibility for their academic achievements.

Academic Coaching is NOT:

  • Academic Advising
  • Career Counseling
  • Psychological Counseling
  • Supplemental Instruction
  • Tutoring

**Students in need of such services will be referred to the appropriate campus resources
