Students may be assigned to coaches who will work with them until graduation. We encourage students to meet with their coach a minimum of three times in a semester. During your session with your coach please come prepared to discuss your progression in coursework, plans for the following semester, and advise coaches if you are feeling distracted or are experiencing difficulties with your classes.
