Academic coaching is available by appointment to assist students with the academic skills listed below, which are needed 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 counselor. Based on the assessment, a student may be referred to other resources on campus or in the community. 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.

Academic coaching is short-term, free, and available to every Auburn University undergraduate student. Academic coaches meet with students for a maximum of five sessions per semester. The first two sessions will focus on academic (1) workload management and (2) academic goal-setting and follow-through. The next three sessions will focus on three of the remaining topics from the list below.
