Rowan College at Gloucester County

Academic Coaching

​​Rowan College at Gloucester County is committed to student success. As part of this commitment​, the Academic Support Center offers Academic Coaching to all RCGC students. 

The academic coaches work with students one-on-one to help students figure out how, when, and where they learn best. This includes helping students set priorities, develop effective strategies, and maintain focus throughout the school year. The coaches assist students with the development and strengthening of skills that promote resilience, confidence, and self-directed learning. Coaches help students develop accountability and encourage students to fully engage with all of the resources and learning opportunities Rowan College offers. Coaches follow up with students regularly to check in on students' progress and success. 

Academic coaches will work with students on any topic related to being successful academically, including study skills, time management, navigating college life, organization skills, test-taking, self-awareness, and goal clarification.
