Advising and Academic Coaching

Advising and Academic Coaching

Our approach to advising/academic coaching is simple.

What is in the best interest of the student?

Studies show that students who take advantage of academic advising, or academic coaching, increase the likelihood of succeeding academically.  That's why it's important for every student, regardless of GPA or academic ability, to have a one-on-one session with the Academic Success Advisor.  We specialize in the following:

- Developing effective study and test taking skills
- Learning goal setting and goal refinement techniques
- Enhancing notetaking and reading skills
- Identifying other issues that hinder academic success
- Increasing knowledge of UD resources and services

Academic Success works closely with academic departments and faculty advisors to assist students in all aspects of their academic success. Students are also encouraged to see their professors and assigned academic advisors on a regular basis to form positive mentoring relationships as this will further improve the likelihood of academic success.  

If you're interested in regularly scheduled meetings or are in need of one-time assistance to help you reach your academic goals, then stop by the Academic Success office today.  Located in Braniff, Room 114, assistance is available.  No appointments required!
