Academic coaching is available by appointment to assist students with the academic skills necessary to be successful at a major research institution such as Auburn University. Each student is assessed regarding his/her academic skills and emotional/psychological well-being by a Licensed Professional Counselor. Based on the assessment, a student may be referred to other resources on campus or in the community. If a student is assigned to an academic coach, the student and his/her coach will develop an individualized improvement plan, which also may include referrals to other resources on campus. Academic coaching is short-term, free and available to every Auburn University undergraduate student.

Please note: Academic Support is now charging for missed appointments.

Academic coaching focuses on academic skills such as:

  • Note-taking (in a lecture setting or from a textbook)
  • Test-taking strategies and preparing for tests
  • Textbook reading
  • Self-testing, reviewing, and preparing for class
  • Selecting main ideas and recognizing important information
  • Use of support techniques, materials, and resources
  • Time management as it relates to academic tasks
  • Setting a study schedule
  • Academic goal setting

Students who are experiencing more long-term issues and difficulties, including but not limited to: major depressive disorder, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, learning disabilities, abusive relationships, suicidal ideation, and other difficulties that cannot be resolved through the problem-solving model will be referred to other resources for assistance. There may or may not be a cost associated with those services.
