Academic Coaching

Academic coaching is designed to help you create positive habits and routines in relation to your academic goals. One-to-one coaching is a working partnership focused on the process of learning in which you and your coach discuss learning styles, study habits, and current difficulties or barriers to success. The goal is for you to learn new behaviors and practices resulting in habits leading to academic, professional, and personal success.

Every student at UAFS has the opportunity to meet with an academic coach to:

  • address and improve academic performance.
  • utilize campus resources.
  • discuss barriers to success.
  • set achievement goals and improve study planning.
  • think about ambitions and future success.
