Success Coach

Stephanie Cockrell

Stephanie Cockrell

From the Office of Student Success, Stephanie Cockrell is the Academic Success Coach for the College of Fine Arts. 

Success Coaches provide students with academic support in areas such as time management, procrastination, test preparation, note taking, reading strategies and accountability. They are able to work individually with students, assess their strengths and needs and develop a personalized plan of action. Students are welcome to stop by anytime for assistance, however scheduling a meeting in advance is encouraged. 

If you are required to complete a Success Plan, you should contact your Success Coach to schedule an appointment as soon as you can.
