Success Coaching 

In personalized, one-on-one Success Coach meetings, students meet with a coach to talk about their academic experiences, identify areas for growth, and create a customized, realistic plan for success.  For example, students may choose to work on study skills, time management, notetaking, stress management, exam preparation, or other learning strategies. Appointments can be made on TutorTrac. 

UNIV 112: Strategies for Learning 

This one-credit, semester-long course helps students assess their academic skills and become strong, effective learners in college. During the semester, each student work with the instructor and a Success Coach to develop learning strategies such as test preparation, notetaking, study skills, and final exam preparation. Students reflect on their academic experiences and create a plan for success.
