Academic Coaching at Auburn University is a personalized partnership designed to support each student in meeting their academic goals. You and your coach work together to identify your academic habits, interests, skills, concerns and intentions. Through this interactive process you will develop realistic and workable plans to achieve your vision of success in college.
In collaboration with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Academic Support offers Plainsmen’s Prep. This opportunity provides qualified incoming first-year students the chance to review pre-calculus concepts in preparation for a math placement exam at the end of the program. In addition, Plainsmen’s Prep acclimates you to the rigors of the Auburn University environment. You will interact with Auburn faculty, staff, and current undergraduate students to aid in your transition, give you a head start on your success at Auburn, and build a learning community with fellow first-year students.
