What is a Success Coach?
What Students Are Saying
I can definitely say that I wouldn’t have made it through the UW Flexible Option without [my coach’s] help, she was a great advocate and was always there to answer questions. I had some tough moments in that program, and I wouldn’t have pulled through without her support.
Tim Drexler, UW Flexible Option IST (Graduate) & UW Data Science Student
When I started the program, I had a lot of questions, and I found that all my professors, my student success coach, and my student advisor were always there for me.
Venmathi Shanmugam, UW Data Science (Graduate)
I could really feel that you had my best interest at heart and did everything you could when I needed assistance. Thank you.
Sarah Becker, UW Health and Wellness Management (Graduate)
Rely on your Success Coach, because they really know what they are talking about.
Stacy Prodell, UW Flexible Option BSBA (Graduate)
[My coach] was always approachable, always responsive to any questions I had, and he helped ensure that I was staying on track during periods when life got busy and I needed to take breaks. He really helped me navigate through the pauses I had to take between enrollment periods, and he helped me jump back in when I was ready. I have to say that [my coach] was an essential component to my success, and I am thankful for him.
Aaron Apel, UW Flexible Option IST (Graduate)
As a working mom, cross country coach, and master’s degree student, I have greatly appreciated the support of the student success department at the University of Wisconsin. The timely e-mail reminders, prompt and courteous responses to questions, and constant support and encouragement have made my experience as a student easy and enjoyable.
Leah Boerger, UW Health and Wellness Management (Current Student)
I can’t speak highly enough of my Success Coach. His replies were always prompt and helpful. Especially as a distance learner, it’s great to have such a communicative and collaborative teammate.
