Success Coaching

Success coaching is designed to empower students in planning, organization, time management, learning strategies, and study habits. Success Coaching is not an accommodation, but a support service offered to our students who receive accommodations. Students can elect to participate in coaching, and it is not mandatory or punitive.

More about Success Coaching

Success Coaching at Husson University is an individualized, collaborative, and dynamic process of addressing students’ specific needs and personal goals. Coaching focuses on a student’s strengths and identifies strategies to help students overcome obstacles, be strong self-advocates, and build self-determination. Together, a student and coach proactively work towards students successfully carrying out their daily life activities at college in a goal-oriented way. 

Success Coaching can:

  • Assist students in figuring out their college strengths, challenges, and needed support. 
  • Offer academic support skills and core self-management strategies.
  • Provide support and feedback while students use these skills and strategies in college.
  • Give non-judgmental accountability as students work to meet their goals.
  • Connect students to other relevant campus resources.


  • Partner with their coach to determine what works and what doesn't.
  • Have autonomy in decision-making and topics of coaching discussions.
  • Become an expert in how they learn, manage their time, and fully participate in college.
