An Academic Coach IS... 


  • An equal thought-partner in the coaching process.
  • An action-catalyst with accountability.

  • A facilitator of exploration, goal-setting, and      action-planning.
  • An advocate for student empowerment through support and structure.       

An Academic Coach IS NOT... 


  • An academic advisor.
  • A tutor.
  • A therapist.
  • Your parents.
  • An opinion-giver and problem-solver.

Why Participate in Academic Coaching?

Most Students Who Participate in Regular Academic Coaching...

  • Increase their semester GPA by nearly one full point or more and improve their academic standing.
  • Improve their ability to identify, plan, and reach their personal and academic goals.
  • Are more likely to persist, and are more likely to be attending college one year after coaching has ended.

Who Would Benefit From Regular Academic Coaching?...

  • Students returning from Suspension or Dismissal are required to meet with an academic coach during their return semester, and are asked to continue with coaching until they return to Good Standing.
  • Students on any level of Academic Standards standings (AW, AP, CP) are welcome to participate if resources allow!
