Student Success

Success Coach Program

Northwestern College is committed to student success in all things we do. We create a supportive and enriched educational environment yielding graduates who are prepared for career success.

Throughout your first quarter at NC, you will have a dedicated Student Success Coach who will help and guide you by:

  • Supporting, assisting, and empowering you to move from thought to action
  • Meeting your potential by providing advice and encouragement
  • Connecting you with campus resources
  • Developing an Academic Success Plan for you

Your Academic Success Plan will help you to:

  • Understand your motivation to pursue your education
  • Acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses
  • Set-up specific academic achievements in your coursework at NC

In addition to the Success Coach Program, all students at NC who are new to the college experience take our College Success course their very first semester to help them not just with their academic and personal goals, but also with self-management skills and strategies for connecting with the resources they’ll need to succeed.
