Academic Coaching

Just like athletes need coaches to reach the next level, students become smarter, stronger, and more successful with coaching.

An Academic Success coach will help you develop a personalized plan to ensure your success at Creighton.

Reach out if you are looking for help with any area of your academic pursuit including time management, study habits, motivation, and test anxiety. You may meet with a coach for a single check-in appointment or arrange for a regular meeting time – it’s all up to you – but we will cater a program to meet your needs.

Meet with an Academic Coach

Academic coaching through the EDGE provides students with the resources they need to succeed in the classroom and out.
