Academic coaching is an interactive process that focuses on the personal relationship created between the student and the coach. The coach challenges the student to think about his or her personal and/or professional goals in order to relate them to his or her academic/educational goals. Academic Coaches help empower students to take an active and productive approach to their own learning. Academic Coaching is an action-oriented approach to enable students to become self-advocates for their education guided by a positive supporter.

Academic Coaches will help you with:

  • Setting goals and strategies for Academic Success
  • Note Taking Skills
  • Study Skills
  • Problem Solving Skills
  • Test Taking Skills
  • Financial Literacy
  • Building academic self-confidence and self-motivation
  • Identifying resources to enhance both academic success and personal development
  •  Developing a plan of action - holding you accountable - to achieve substantial results.

Your Academic Coach will meet with you three times a month to set and evaluate goals and progress to create a successful first-year experience. Our Academic Coaches are Graduate Assistants who have a keen interest in helping you study smarter, not harder.

Your Academic Coach will be assigned to you based on your University Seminar Course in your PACE Success Team. 

Remember, college is an investment in yourself, let us work with you to help achieve success.
