We are committed to ensuring our Veteran and Active Duty students receive the resources and tools they need to succeed while here at The Citadel. As a military-connected student you may face different roadblocks than the average student as you transition from military life to life as a civilian and college student.
The Veteran Student Success Center (VSSC) offers academic coaching, career coaching and resiliency coaching for all Veteran and Active Duty students. Sessions can be booked through the respective links below and will take place in person or virtually depending on the student’s preference.
Please reach out to program coordinator, Melissa West at MWest5@Citadel.edu or 843-953-4706 if you have any questions about our coaching programs.
Academic coaching, how is it different from advising?
Academic coaching provides students with the “soft skills” associated with success in their college experience. Academic advisors guide students through potential course work and degree requirements.
Academic coaches work with students on developing academic skills including but not limited to…
Effectively Utilizing Campus Resources,
Communicating with Faculty and Staff,
Balancing the Demands of Academic and Personal Life,
Managing your Email, Notes, etc.,
Testing Strategies, and
20-minute student and coach sessions led by the student’s needs and current challenges.
Provides student not only with assistance on developing the soft skills needed to succeed in school but connect them to internal and external resources for additional help.
Academic coaching sessions will be available online or in-person depending on the student’s preference and availability.
Time slots will be available similar to office hours with one day bi-weekly providing office hours in the evening.
