Academic Success Coaching


WSU is committed to providing students with the skills necessary to achieve academic success. The Academic Support Program is designed to help all students attain their full academic potential, while providing extra assistance to students who need more guidance as they adjust to college life.


Successful students put in many hours of efficient work outside of class to pre-pare for the rigors of the classroom experience. Academic support will help students transition into their new learning environment and increase their chances of succeeding academically.

The academic skills coach serves as a small general resource, where students can receive help with various school related “how to” problems such as time and stress management, how to take various types of exams, how to outline, etc.

The goal of the program is to help students improve grades, stay on track throughout the semester and provide students with individual attention. The academic skills coach does not teach; rather, reinforces the skills students use to achieve academic success.
