CCC Success Coaching FAQs 

What is Success Coaching, and how does it work? 

Success coaching is designed to help students maximize their college experience and reach their academic goals by increasing the connection points between students and the college. This is done through one-on-one meetings between the student and the Success Coach (usually 30 minutes to 1 hour in length). 

In these meetings both the student and their Success Coach will discuss the student’s academic goals and any academic challenges the student may be experiencing. Then, they will explore strategies that the student can implement to help overcome these obstacles and then direct students to other CCC resources that can aid students in reaching their full potential. 

Is Success Coaching the same as tutoring? 

No, it is not tutoring in the sense that you Success Coach does not tutor you in specific course content or material. However, a coach can refer you to the appropriate tutoring services as needed. Success coaches will also help you connect with additional CCC resources that can help improve your academic performance throughout the semester. 

Is Success Coaching the same as Academic Advising? 

No, Success Coaches will not help you select and register for courses or set up you academic plans in Student Planner. In addition, a coach does not help you make financial aid decisions. For these areas, you should visit your academic advisor or the Financial Aid office. 

Who is eligible for Success Coaching? 

Students are selected for the Success Coaching Program each semester. Please check back for more information about the application process to become a part of this program or reach out to the Director of the Success Coaching Program, Julie Mullen, at jmullen@cccneb.edu. 

If I am part of the Success Coaching program, how many meetings are required? 

You and your Success Coach will meet a minimum of five times per semester. You can work together to determine together if additional meetings (in-person or virtually) will help on your way to academic success. Checking in to celebrate successes large or small is always encouraged!
