Academic Success Coaching

Academic Success Coaching is designed to provide students with individualized academic support to learn or improve academic skills such as time management, study strategies, note taking, course navigation, and more.

The Academic Success Center offers a variety of Academic Success Programs which are implemented by Professional Academic Success Coaches and Peer Academic Success Coaches.

Professional Academic Success Coaches

Professional Academic Success Coaches offer one-on-one appointment based support to students. Appointments are scheduled for 3o minutes and can be as frequent as a student needs. It is recommended that coaching appointments are spaced out at least 2 weeks apart so that students have the opportunity to practice implementing new strategies. Students can schedule an appointment through SSC Campus or by visiting the Academic Success Center. All students will need to complete the Coaching Intake Form, this can be printed and turned in at the front desk of the Academic Success Center, or it can be emailed as an attachment to Rachel Noto.

Peer Academic Success Coaches

Peer Academic Success Coaches (PACs) offer drop-in support to students. No appointment is necessary and students can visit Peer Academic Coaches as frequently as they would like. PACs can support students best in the following areas:

Motivation     Note Taking     Organization     Reading Strategies     Study Strategies     Time Management
