Peer Academic Success Coaches

Peer Coaches are here to support you during remote learning. With most spring classes at UCSC being taught remotely due to the pandemic, Peer Coaches have adapted their services to also be online. Connect with a peer coach by accessing their zoom office hour times listed below, request an individual meeting using the google form found at the bottom of this page, or attend one of the many events that Peer Coaches host (check the events calendar below).
Peer Coaches are equipped to help student navigate many challenges including:
  • Strategies for time management, and creating a schedule to learn effectively in a remote environment.
  • How to study effectively, break larger projects into more manageable parts, and get started on assignments.
  • Guidance in identifying personal and academic goals, and creating a path to achieve those goals.
  • Advise on how to explore majors at UCSC, or transition from one major to another.
  • Assistance in how to access campus resources (Career Center, Disability Resource Center, Counseling and Psychological Services, etc.)
  • Peer Coaches are here to listen to your story and challenges, and reflect with you on how to be successful at UCSC!
