Academic Success Coaches

Trained graduate students provide individualized support to students in regularly scheduled, confidential, one-on-one meetings to enhance the following:

  • concerns about transitioning to college
  • self-management
  • test preparation
  • study skills
  • managing assignments
  • strategies to communicate with a professor
  • connecting with appropriate resources on campus
  • any additional challenges a student may face

Academic Success Coaches will NOT:

  • take care of your responsibilities for you
  • talk to professors on your behalf
  • serve as an area specific tutor
  • track you down if you stop showing up to meetings
  • remind you about your personal obligations
