Tips for Studying for Online Finals

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.  For Success Coaching meetings, we are now using Stetson SSC to set up these meetings.

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

Peer Success Coaches (PSCs) are student leaders who have been trained through our success coaching program to work with other students in a stress-free environment to help build and refine academic skills in order to be successful.  PSCs provide a unique insight as they are current students who have found ways to be successful right here at Stetson!

PSCs are also available to schedule appointments through Stetson SSC.  PSCs also have a number of hours available in the Hollis Family Student Success Center for walk-in hours.  Check out the PSC schedule for walk-in hours for more information.

Midterm Success Workshop

These are active sessions for students to learn and practice strategies to improve academic performance. Each session includes similar content, so students only need to attend one. If a student is unable to attend a session, they are also always welcome to visit the Hollis Family Student Success Center (or virtually connect with Academic Success staff) throughout the semester during business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) for support and to get their questions answered as they make plans for the second half of the semester.
