Appointments usually last from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your need. You can schedule appointments weekly or as often as you would like. Together we will come up with a plan that meets your needs for success.

During your appointment we will discuss how you can enhance your academic performance and assist you in creating a plan to meet your goals. We work with students on time management, study skills, and test taking strategies.

Freshmen and sophomores on academic warning or probation are required to meet with an academic coach each semester until they are back in good academic standing. Read more...
