Student Success Coaches
MEET YOUR PERSONAL Coker University LIAISON.
Whether you’re living on campus, commuting to class, taking evening courses, or even working on your degree online—you’re going to face some challenges in your life as a college student.
That’s why every Coker student is assigned a student success coach at the beginning of their college career. This specially trained staff member will work with you to overcome any obstacles that may arise, and serves as a main point of contact when you need to talk to somebody at the college.
Everyone needs help from time to time. Student success coaches assist students every day in a variety of areas, including:
- Career Coaching
- Internship Search
Registering for Classes
Using Coker’s Online Platforms
Returning to School After Time Away
Your student success coach will guide you through the college experience and connect you with beneficial campus resources. They work directly with students, often with one-on-one coaching, to answer questions, provide clarity, navigate complicated processes, and build relationships with the Coker community.
