Meet the Coaches

Students can ask any coach for assistance, but each Student Success Coach has certain programs primarily assigned to them. This specialization allows the coaches to become familiar with challenges that can occur regularly in a similar program, such as certain prerequisites a program may require before beginning Technical Education Courses. Students can always contact the Student Success Center if they are unsure of where to receive certain student services. The Student Success Coaches will gladly aid the student in getting where he or she needs to go.
