What is Academic Coaching?

Academic coaching in the College of Engineering is one arm of the Engineering Academic Support Program (EASP). The mission of the EASP is to serve students across all engineering majors with a strong focus on assisting the pre-engineering student.

Academic Coaching sessions are designed to be a one-on-one process of helping students examine academic strengths, concerns, and perceived barriers to success. Individualized Academic Contracts/Goals are explored and developed, all designed to increase academic confidence, performance and success in the engineering major of your choice.
