Our academic coaching program is free and available to students at all stages of their college career who want to foster skills that will help them succeed in college and beyond. Peer Academic Coaches are advanced students in good academic standing. Throughout each semester, our academic coaches guide students in developing skills such as time management, effective study habits, practical goal setting, and more.
