Southwestern College Professional Studies believes in providing learners with tools that enhance the support provided by the Academic Success Coaching team while promoting learner self-sufficiency. Learners are assigned an Academic Success Coach (ASC) when they enroll at SC. The coach will assist the learner with transcript evaluation, planning a path to graduation, understanding time management, self-efficacy and accountability, and navigating SC policy and procedures. In combination, the coaching aspect of the learner’s education allows the learner to develop personal soft-skills often associated with a degree.
Your journey to graduation will happen both inside and outside of the classroom. BlackBoard functions as the academic portal for your education while Self-Service functions as the business portal. The website contains additional tools and information essential to your success. Learners are encouraged to utilize each of these tools to gain a complete understanding of their educational journey at SC. Academic Success Coaches and SC staff are here to guide you along the way.
