What is Academic Coaching?

A free personal consultation with one of our Academic Retention Coordinators designed to help you address specific academic topics. Together with an Academic Retention Coordinator, students examine habits of working, current academic difficulties, develop individual academic goals, and enhance knowledge of campus resources.






Why should I meet with an Academic Retention Coordinator?

Meeting with an Academic Retention Coordinator is comfortable and low-maintenance. It is a chance for you to talk about your own experience at Florida Gulf Coast University, in and beyond the classroom. Academic Retention Coordinators are available to coach students through obstacles that arise at any point in the academic career and to help students create positive, effective habits.
