Academic Coaching

Looking for strategies to help boost your success in the classroom? Need help finding study techniques that work? Academic coaching services might be a great fit for you!

Academic coaching will help you:

  • Develop research-based study methods that are efficient and effective
  • Improve your time management so you can achieve better balance between academics and your personal life
  • Learn how to leverage various university resources to maximize your learning
  • Successfully transition from high school learning to college learning 
  • Create an individualized plan to organize your semester

Academic coaching is a judgement-free zone for you to discuss your academic challenges and accomplishments. Students can expect to meet with the academic coach for 30 minutes, 2-5 times, depending on your needs and goals. 

Here's how to make an academic coaching appointment:

First-year students

  2. Select "Search Availability”

  3. Select “Academic Coaching” in the drop down Center menu on the left of your screen.

  4. Enter date and/or time range based on appointment preferences.  Select “Search.”

  5. Select the appointment you would like to schedule

  6. Add your phone number (required) and any notes you want to share with your adviser about the reason for your visit (optional).  Select “Save.”

Upperclassmen

What to do before your appointment

  1. After scheduling, you will receive a confirmation email to your OU email account. The appointment time will also appear on your Google calendar which is linked to your OU email account.

  2. You will receive an email reminder via your OU email account two days before your scheduled appointment.

Late Arrival Policy

Students who miss their academic coaching appointment more than twice will be locked out of the appointment system, and will need to contact The Tutoring Center at tutoring@oakland.edu to schedule an appointment.

Guest policy
To ensure the privacy of students, other participants such as friends and/or family should not be present during the appointment. We want time to focus on your success and any questions you might have.
