A service of University Access Programs

  1. Who can receive academic coaching?

Priority will be given to 1st-and 2nd-year students, Alpha Scholars, and Athletes.  Other students will be prioritized according to need and other critical academic issues that may be going on.

  1. What will academic coaching consist of?

Sessions will be scheduled in 30-minute increments and are intended to be short-term and time-limited to address critical concerns related to the transition to online learning, semester grades, or any other academic concerns that may impact their ability to be successful this semester and/or return next semester. Staff will conduct sessions via Zoom, phone, or email depending on the student’s need.

  1. Who can make referrals and what does the process look like?

Referrals can be made by any staff or faculty member.  Services will start on Wednesday, March 25th. UAP will reach out to students with an intake form to better understand the need, and to determine the best mode of communication to address it: email, phone, or a Zoom meeting.

  1. Who is providing the service?

UAP staff and graduate interns.  Departmental student workers may be asked to participate depending on the need.

We are funneling all communication related to coaching to academiccoaching@acu.edu.  In addition to the referral form, please feel free to use this email address to ask questions, discuss students’ needs in greater detail, etc.

If appropriate depending on the situation, UAP staff will refer the student to another department.
