Academic Success Coaches

Academic Success Coaches is a free service offered to help students develop strategies to successfully navigate college and achieve their educational, personal, and professional goals. Our coaches enhance the student learning experience through guidance, resources, and support.

Academic Success Coaches work individually with students in person, by phone, and/or online. Whether you attend one of our neighboring campuses or are a 100% online student, all can benefit from Academic Success Coaching services.

Instructors are encouraged to e-mail the Academic Success Coaches to schedule a hosting of in-class presentations. We can connect with students that may be struggling academically or need more personalized assistance.
