Academic Coaching


Academic Coaching is free for all K-State students. Students are paired with a professional team member who provides an individualized approach to guide students toward academic success. 

From developing strategies to conquer a difficult class to maximizing personal strengths, the Academic Coaches meet throughout the year to equip and empower students to succeed. Coaches meet with students one-on-one to support them as they identify and reach academic goals, develop study and life skills, overcome challenges, and find motivation and purpose. 

Getting Connected

Students can sign-up at any time for an Academic Coach and can expect to work through a variety of topics, including:

  • Improving goal-setting and goal achievement
  • Refining decision making skills
  • Gaining confidence with responsibilities
  • Sharpening academic skills such as test-taking, note taking, organization, and time management
  • Motivation

Academic Coaches and Academic Advisors

Academic Coaches meet with students to help answer questions and create an individualized strategy for success. The Coaches strive to be available when students need them and can help students work through events that may affect their academic experience at K-State.

Academic Advisors are assigned to students based upon their major. Academic Advisors meet with students at least once per semester to provide information on class selection, major requirements, and degree completion.

Group Presentations

Any organization, group, or individual wishing to learn more about the services and benefits of Academic Coaching should request a presentation. We will gladly share about the Academic Coaching Program and how every individual has something to gain through Academic Coaching.
