Academic Success Coaching

Do you wish you had a coach to help you get through the challenges of your course work and college life? We have the solution – sign up for an Academic Success Coach!

Students and coaches work together to develop proactive strategies to address academic concerns and life challenges. You work one-on-one with a coach who will help you:
  • Focus on your individual goals and identify steps to reach them.
  • Identify and overcome obstacles that may impede success.
  • Develop the academic skills and strategies needed to become a self-regulated learner.
  • Explore effective time management and organizational skills.
  • Connect to helpful University and community resources.
Early Alert Intervention Program

Our faculty care about our students and want to provide every chance for them to succeed. If an instructor is concerned about specific issues that might impede a student’s success, a referral is made to the Early Alert Intervention Program.

Students who are exhibiting poor academic performance, class participation, and/or attendance issues can work with a team of faculty and staff to identify and develop new strategies for success. Our students find the “wake-up call” very helpful to keep them on course.

Undeclared Discovery Program
Students entering college can be undecided about their major and future career planes. The goal of the Undeclared/Undecided Discovery Program is to help students choose a major before the end of their second year with the goal of graduating in four years. We help them accomplish this goal by providing:
  • A first-year curriculum composed of general education and interdisciplinary courses.
  • A specialized First Year Experience (FYE) course specifically designed for undeclared/undecided students to explore majors and participate in Career Services activities.
  • A dedicated Academic Success Coach/Advisor who meets regularly with students until a major is chosen.
  • Useful resources designed to meet a student’s needs and succeed.
