Definitions

Academic Coaching: Academic Coaches meet one-on-one with academically at-risk students to create an academic plan, set goals, and share resources. Each Coaching session is tailored to the students’ needs and focuses on general academic advising, academic planning/success strategies, strengths identification, engagement planning/campus involvement, and navigating campus resources ultimately resulting in skill development, performance improvement, and increased persistence.

Exploratory Advising: Exploratory Advisors meet individually with undergraduate students to explore new major options, evaluate course credit for major change, build a course schedule, and prepare for departmental advisement.

First-Year Advising: First-Year Advisors (FYAs) are assigned a caseload of approximately 300 undergraduate students within a certain major or set of majors. First-Year Advisors discuss transition to college, build a course schedule, map curricular requirements, track advisee’s progress towards degree; and evaluate transfer, AP, and/or IB credit. FYA’s also conduct multiple levels of outreach and intervention.
