Academic Coaching is a free service that introduces students to more effective learning and study strategies. Students work 1:1 with an ASC staff member or peer academic coach to enhance time management and study habits as well as learn about important resources on campus. Academic Coaching's individualized approach helps students identify academic strengths and strategies that will aid in learning. Students will explore success topics such as organization, time management, motivation, procrastination, and concentration.
