The Center for Academic Success offers academic coaching to students who are looking to improve their academic and college transitional skills. These skills include but are not limited to: study strategies, time management, organization, goal setting, and note-taking.

Students can schedule a meeting with a professional staff or Peer Academic Coach (PAC) to discuss their academic performance and to co-create an academic success plan that will guide them throughout the semester. An Academic Coach will meet with you to discuss:
