Academic coaching is a program offered by the Academic Excellence Programs office in the Academic Success Center. The program matches undergraduate students with a trained academic coach who will meet with the student and assist them in their quest to be successful students. Academic coaches are committed to providing outstanding service to our students by utilizing coaching strategies that facilitate the development of each student served.
