How does coaching help students?

College success coaching is a highly specialized form of support that empowers students to make the most of their time in college. It is designed for short-term engagement to help students define their goals, understand their strengths, find support, and develop strategies for getting what they need from their time in college.
Personalized coaching from an experienced higher education professional can make all the difference for students who are stuck in significant college transitions or times of struggle. 
Not all coaches are prepared to focus on college concerns. When you are considering a coach to support you in college, inquire about their professional expertise in higher education as part of your decision.

  • Uncertain about what to study
  • Dissatisfied with their experiences at college
  • Struggling with managing their learning
  • Having trouble targeting a career
  • Feeling adrift and isolated during remote or online learning
