Success Coaching


What is success coaching?

Are you feeling stuck? Are you having difficulty reaching your goals? A success coach will help you discover strategies to take control of your academic, personal, and professional success.  Our graduate student coaches are specially trained to help you unlock your full potential. Coaches are not academic advisors, tutors, or clinicians. Your coach will not tell you what to do, but will help you feel supported and encouraged to reach the goals you set for yourself, while being pushed and held accountable along the way. Coaching sessions are 30 minutes.

How do I know if I should meet with a coach?

Meeting with a coach may be right for you if you:

  • Need help setting goals and establishing priorities
  • Would like to sharpen your focus and concentration
  • Want to better follow your daily or weekly schedule
  • Feel overwhelmed trying to balance all of your commitments
  • Are falling behind and would like to get back on track
  • Want to maximize your academic performance and personal wellbeing
  • Have a GPA that is lower than where you would like it to be
  • Need help connecting with the right resources on campus
