Academic Success Center Programs & Services
Academic Success Coaching
Academic Success Coaches serve as the primary facilitator of academic coaching for students on academic intervention, or for students choosing to opt into services for additional accountability and support. Students collaborate with their Academic Success Coach to develop strategic goals for the semester, connect to additional campus resources, and receive support for overall academic success.
To learn more information about Success Coaching, including how to opt-in to the service, please visit our webpage.

- Effectively Utilizing Study Groups
- Improving Reading Strategies
- Communicating with Professors
- Succeeding with Tests
Academic Skill Workshops
The Academic Success Center also offers virtual and in-person workshop opportunities so students can continue enhancing their academic skill set.

Our Peer Mentors help students navigate the academic environment and celebrate successes – big or small.
