Student has many questions and unsure who to talk to?
Success Coaches are an important part of a student’s support network. They help students understand TCTC processes and procedures, share information about campus resources and services, and explain how to navigate events that may affect their academic experience. Success Coaches offer Coach Check-In meetings each semester to help with advising preparation, transfer assistance, academic progress, changing majors, and other general questions. A student can identify their assigned Success Coach by selecting the “My Success Network” tile in MyTCTC. Success Coaches offer in-person, phone, and virtual appointments. The primary goal of the Success Coach is to ensure that the student understands and is comfortable in the college environment. Encouraging Success Coach meetings helps students become better self-advocates by becoming aware of all the resources TCTC has to help them succeed. For more information click here.
