Student Success Modules

As Academic Coaches meet with their assigned students and learn about their unique academic goals, coaches may recommend that the student complete Student Success Modules. Modules are mini lessons that engage students in a topic designed to enhance their academic experience. Coaches will make recommendations based on the needs of each student, however, students are encouraged to review modules that may interest them at any time.

Eligible students participating in the ACE and iAchieve programs will have access to these modules via their online Canvas course.
