Student success coaches empower students to succeed in college
and beyond. They help you build academic and college-life skills
to prevent, prepare for and respond to common obstacles students
encounter in higher education. And then they guide you toward
achieving your personal goals by putting those learned skills
into practice. In short, student success coaches help you learn
how to learn.
At COTC, you can work with an assigned success coach from day one
to make sure your educational journey is a success. Coaches are
available on every campus and online.
Student success coaches work individually with students to
develop healthy student-centered habits such as:
- Time Management
- Learning styles
- Resource utilization
- Active Notetaking
- Study Skills
- Success Planning

struggling or need academic assistance to get them back on track

Who Can Benefit from a Student Success Coach?
All students — no matter what their program or year in school —
can benefit from a student success coach. Coaching is recommended
for students who struggle to remember information from a lecture
or reading, receive low scores on exams, have difficulty managing
their time or are generally not performing well in class.
