WKU Online; Coaching for Academic Success and Excellence

Coaching for Academic Readiness & Excellence 

As an adult learner, juggling college with work and other responsibilities can be challenging. What if you had someone you could call, email, ask questions ... someone that would work with you to connect you to resources and help you stay on track?

It turns out, YOU DO, as part of our Coaching for Academic Readiness & Excellence program, created specifically for distance learners.

Signing up is simple! Just fill out the form on this page to start the process.

Here's how it works:

  • You'll receive a phone call from your coach to talk about the benefits of coaching, and your personal and professional goals. This is an important piece of the process, as it's used to guide the development of your personalized learning plan, which we'll talk about in a moment.

  • You will take the Learning & Study Skills Inventory (LASSI). This inventory is paid for by WKU, and is designed to measure components of strategic learning. If you would like to learn more about the LASSI assessment, click here.

  • Your coach will use this information to create a personalized learning plan built around your goals, strengths, challenges and your unique circumstances. This plan will act as your road map - it will guide you and help you stay on track toward achieving your goals.

Your coach will always be there for you, lending support and guidance throughout your entire program, and connecting you with resources you need most. We also understand that life changes and sometimes goals have to be adjusted - that's okay - we will be there to help you map out an alternate route!
