Academic Recovery Process – Success Coaching

 One of the requirements of the Academic Recovery Process for students on Academic Alert or first Probation is that you meet with your UCA Peer Success Coach. Our coaches are available to help you identify challenges you’ve had in past semesters, and find ways to improve your academic standing.

Peer Success Coaches are UCA students who have had training in time management skills, study methods, note-taking skills, and test-taking strategies.  They’re also familiar with the academic policies concerning alert, probation, and suspension, as well as the support services and resources you may need to improve your academic standing. Finally, our coaches are supportive and approachable, and they want to help.

 


Meeting with my Peer Coach
 

Students on First Academic Probation

  • All students on first Academic Probation must meet with a Peer Success Coach twice prior to registration for the following fall or spring  semester.  Meeting early in the term can help you avoid another semester of low academic achievement.
  • You should receive an email from your peer coach sent to your UCA email account that introduces him or her, and tells you how to make an appointment by following the link in the email or going to myUCA, GradesFirst, “Get Tutoring or Coaching,” “Success Coaching,” and selecting your coach.
  • If you have difficulty in scheduling an appointment, email your coach or contact the Office of Student Success at studentsuccess@uca.edu for assistance.
  • Be sure you download the Self-Assessment form, COMPLETE it, and bring a copy with you to your session.
