Academic Success Coaches

The purpose of the Academic Success Coaching program is to  assist at-risk, under–represented, and under-served students through intrusive advising and referrals for academic support. To that end, the Academic Success Coaches offer  students academic success tips, Texas Success Initiative (TSI) and developmental education coursework guidance. The Academic Success Coaches can assess students' needs and help guide students with the identification of appropriate TAMUCC resources. They also assist students during regular advising periods, new student orientation, and document and track student progress throughout the semester.
