Academic Coaching: Models for Student Success and Retention

Last updated November 19, 2014

Overview

Academic coaching is a powerful retention tool for at-risk, probationary, international, and other critical student populations. Coaching allows students to have one-on-one conversations with professionals who help them set academic goals and fill any gaps that exist between academic advising, tutoring, career services, and counseling. An in-house academic coaching model is a cost-effective approach to serving high-risk student groups.
