Honors Peer Academic Coaching

In an effort to continue to offer Honors Peer Academic Coaching virtually, we have integrated our coaching services into Advise Assist. To schedule a remote coaching appointment, students can login to Advise Assist and select “Honors Peer Academic Coaching” as their appointment type. Students will then be prompted to select a subject. For example, “Honors Calculus I Peer Academic Coaching.” Once the appointment is made, students will receive an email confirming their appointment and a Peer Coach will reach out via email to provide the Zoom link for their appointment time. Coaches will be available for appointments every Tuesday and Thursday from 5 – 7 pm.
