Academic Coaching: What Is It?

Concerned about academic performance? Want to consult someone about managing your time, test preparation, study strategies, or techniques to gain an academic edge?  A coach is someone who will help you clarify your academic goals and enhance your academic skills and performance. Academic coaching is a partnership that provides an opportunity to explore how your academic performance can be taken to a new level.  The academic coaches in the College of Engineering are available to any undergraduate in the College of Engineering.
