Academic Coaching

Academic Coaching is Going Online!

Academic Coaching will be available to students using the BlueJeans app or the student's preferred mode of contact. Students can continue using TutorTrac to schedule an appointment. We encourage students who have an existing relationship with an Academic Coach to contact the coach directly to learn more about study tips for succeeding in online classes. Students can indicate their preferred mode of contact in the notes field when they schedule an appointment.

The Process of Academic Coaching

What is Academic Coaching?

Academic Coaching provides students with the chance to work individually with professional staff members to enhance their academic skills, gain confidence, discover motivation, and improve performance. Students usually schedule a 45-60 minute meeting every two weeks or once a month, depending on their individual need. Academic Coaching is available year round so schedule your appointment now.
