ACADEMIC SUCCESS COACHES

One - On - One Coaching | Resources | Study Skills | Campus Referrals
The coaches meet with students, help them with time management, organizational skills, and study skills, and help the navigate PVCC, connecting them with offices and programs that can help them or can help them to get the most that they can out of their time at PVCC.  Referrals include Financial Aid, Advising, Student Life, Testing, Career Services, tutoring, and all of the other areas that students use.  The coaches take the guess-work out of students' efforts to be involved and successful here by working with them to identify what it is they need or can most benefit from.
