Success Coaching

Success Coaching

Success coaching is designed to aid students in achieving their maximum academic potential.

Success Coaching sessions are generally divided into four main areas: assessment, study strategies, practice skills and "closing the loop." While any academic topic can be discussed in a session, some of the main areas of interest are:

  • Time Management and Procrastination
  • Reading and Studying
  • Test Taking
  • Note taking
  • Classroom and Test Stress and Anxiety

Students are also encouraged to discuss any other issues they may have in order for the success coach to tailor the coaching session.

Self Service Learning Tools

Interested students can choose from a few different success coaching options:

One-to-One Success Coaching

Students can sign up to meet one-to-one with a staff member to discuss any issues or questions he or she may have relating to academic success.

Group Success Coaching

For friends or classmates all wishing to discuss the same topic, a group success coaching session can be scheduled.

Peer Success Coaching

Faculty and staff nominated students are also trained through our success coaching program to work with students in a stress-free environment that help to break down stress barriers that may prevent students from wanting to work with a staff member.

If you have any questions, or to schedule your success coaching appointment, stop by our office, call 386-822-7345 or email us at In doing so, please let us know if you would prefer a staff or peer success coach.
