Academic Success Coaching

Academic Success Coaching is available to all students free of charge and involves counseling and support to help students improve. Our Academic Success Coaches work one-on-one with students to provide accountability for coursework and partner with students to create individualized Academic Success Plans as they pursue their academic goals. Academic Success Coaching meetings typically occur once a week for around 30 minutes. In addition to these meetings, Academic Success Coaches check in with students periodically during the week through email, text messaging and phone calls. Several hundred students utilize Academic Success Coaching through CSAS every semester.
