Student Experience

Support for Students in our Certificate Programs

Once you are admitted to one of our certificate programs, you will have the option to work with our student success coach. The coach is here to help you through the enrollment process, and develop a custom program plan based on your preferred academic timeline. Once you're taking courses the success coach will ensure you're aware of the academic resources available to you, and will be present to help you stay on-track with course assignments. 

We know life happens particularly for adult and professional learners who have many variables impacting their lives. If a life event requires you to adjust your academic plans, the student success coach is a resource to help you adjust your academic plan accordingly.
