Success Coaching

Success Coaches are dedicated to helping students get the most out of their college experience. First year students (those under 30 credit hours) will receive one-on-one attention at least twice per month from a coach who is committed to student development and success. Students who entered UNO in Fall 2015 and participated in Success Coaching (3 or more meetings) were retained to the Fall 2016 semester at a rate of 69%. Coaches work closely with academic advisers and other resources across campus to support students in achieving their personal, academic, and other professional goals. Our Success Coaches work with students in the following areas in order to help them maximize their college experience:

  • Improving effectiveness in and out of the classroom
  • Connecting students to the campus community
  • Building leadership skills
  • Creating balance and managing stress
  • Boosting self-confidence and developing goals for the future
  • Many others!

If you are not a first year student, we recommend taking advantage of our personalized academic consultations.  FYE offers undergraduate students an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Student Success Counselor to review and make improvements to their study and personal success habits. These consultations, which are free and available only to current UNO students, involve assessing a student's need and developing a plan of action for reaching the student's academic goals.
