HOW AND WHEN TO REFER TO A SUCCESS COACH

Students, faculty, staff, and community members can refer a student to Success Coaching by emailing success.coach@sru.edu or calling 724-738-2011. Referrals for Success Coaching should be based on a student struggling with at least one of the following:

  • Academic challenges related to academic habits, learning strategies, and/or studying
  • Academic motivation and/or interest in coursework
  • Exam preparation
  • Skills to transition smoothly to college academic environment
  • Balancing commitments, time management, and prioritization
  • Academic stress
  • Academic progress and/or academic standing; academic planning to improve grades
  • Academic goal setting

Please remember, if you know a student's specific need, refer them to the office specializing in that area. If a student needs general academic guidance, refer them to a success coach who will help them create an action plan, determine campus resources, and provide accountability.
