Success Coaching

student getting help with a mentor via virtual meetingYou can do it… we can help!

Whatever you’re aiming to achieve at WCC, your Success Coach can help you get there.

Success Coaches provide holistic, personalized, one on one support to students throughout their first year at WCC.

New degree-seeking students are assigned a dedicated Success Coach based on their academic program.

Success Coaches primarily work with students from the time they enroll at WCC through the end of their first year.

Your Success Coach can:

  • Help you navigate obstacles that might impede your success
  • Connect you to campus services and resources
  • Work with you to develop goals and be your accountability partner
  • Provide academic pro-tips for maximizing your college experience
