A service of University Access Programs
- 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.
- What will academic coaching consist of?
Sessions will be scheduled in 30-minute to 60-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.
- Who can make referrals and what does the process look like?
Referrals can be made by any student, staff, or faculty member. A member of the Academic Coaching team will reach out to students with a request for an intake meeting to better understand the need, and to determine the best mode of communication to address it: email, phone, face to face, or a Zoom meeting.
- Who is providing the service?
UAP staff and graduate interns. Departmental student workers may be asked to participate depending on the need.
- How can I contact the staff about this program?
We are funneling all communication related to coaching to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to the referral form, please feel free to use this email address to ask questions, discuss students’ needs in greater detail, etc.
- Anything else I should know?
If appropriate depending on the situation, UAP staff will refer the student to another department.
