Academic Coaching

Make an appointment with an Academic Coach to learn how you can create strategies to successfully navigate your academic and personal goals. Look at how you spend your time, discuss your priorities, and work to master effective study habits. During a consultation, create a plan and then stay in touch with your Coach for support in these areas: 

  • Time management - develop a master schedule for school, sleep, and me time
  • Study strategies - learn a variety of study strategies for each course
  • Note-taking - turn your notes into critical thinking study materials
  • Test anxiety - be adequately prepared to avoid anxiety
  • Test-taking strategies - prepare for exams based on test format
  • Reading comprehension strategies - practice understanding and retaining information
  • Textbook reading - use your textbook strategically

Frequently Asked Questions

Nothing! Academic coaching is included as part of your tuition.

As soon as possible! Consider meeting with a coach to plan out your semester. Definitely schedule a session as soon as possible when you are feeling overwhelmed and/or struggling in a course.

Meet with coaches as needed — weekly, biweekly, a few times a semester, or just one time to get support with a current issue. Coaching is determined by you and your needs.

Academic Coaches are located in Room 01 of the Academic Success Center, which is on the lower level of the Humanities Center. Coaches are also available to meet with students via Zoom.

Because of high demand, coaching sessions are by appointment on the Spartan Success Network under the Academic Coaching service. Drop-in sessions are available if coaches have openings, but we highly encourage students to make an appointment.

Laptop, textbooks, notes, syllabi, planner, and/or any tools you use to be successful.
