The Academic Coaching program is a peer-to-peer support service designed to enrich and expand a student’s current study habits.
In an academic coaching session a student will have the opportunity to:
- create their own academic goals;
- develop various approaches to time management;
- improve current note-taking skills;
- design a concrete study plan;
- learn about other campus resources;
- and many other academic skills.
What is the difference between an EPASS Peer Tutoring and Academic Coaching appointment?
An EPASS Peer Tutoring appointment will be selected based on a specific course the student is currently enrolled in, for example CHEM141. In an EPASS tutoring appointment, the tutor will refer students to their textbook to help clarify a topic; whereas, an Academic Coach will work with a student and their textbook to teach them how to navigate the different parts of the textbook and how to read it effectively.
You can schedule an appointment with an Academic Coach through College Connect.
In order to apply to be an Academic Coach you must have an overall GPA of 3.8 or above. To begin the Academic Coaching application process click here.
