Are you aware of the many ways our Student Success Center helps you succeed in your classes and beyond? It’s a valuable resource for your college years. From success coaches and faculty advisors to academic and career support services, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at this roundup of 5 ways the Student Success Center assists you, and make sure you take advantage of the personalized support they provide.
Success Coaches Support You from Day One
Every Hilltopper has a personal success coach who is their go-to person for advising and guidance. From the moment you enroll at St. Edward’s, your success coach partners with you to navigate your college career. Working together, you’ll create a customized, flexible road map for meeting your goals and degree requirements.
Your coach collaborates with your school and faculty advisor to help you choose your classes, explore majors and minors, tap into academic support, and identify co-curricular activities that align with your strengths and passions. Connect with your coach often. They’ll help you make the most of your St. Edward’s experience.
Faculty Guide Your Academic Journey
In addition to your success coach, you’ll work with faculty members from your area of study as you proceed through your degree plan. Our talented faculty within each academic school want to get to know you and are ideal advisors and mentors during your time in college. If you have questions or concerns about a course, be sure to stop by for a visit during their office hours or make an appointment to meet with them.
Like your success coach, your professors can talk with you about careers in your field of study, research opportunities, internships and graduate school. They can also write letters of recommendation for internships, fellowships, jobs and graduate studies.
Academic Support Prepares You to Excel
Academics are rigorous at St. Edward’s, and we’re here to help you be successful in your classes, especially as you get ready for midterm and final exams. Stay on top of your studies by taking advantage of your free academic support services.

SDS Accommodates Students with Disabilities
Student Disability Services (SDS) offers services and resources to students with documented disabilities, including: academic and/or housing accommodations, academic counseling, referral services and self-advocacy skills. If you have a learning, medical or psychological disability, SDS can provide you with appropriate accommodations. Contact them to discuss any accommodations you may need.
