Strategies for Academic Success

Academic Coaching in Transitions (ACT)

Students returning to UNCG after receiving approval of an Academic Dismissal appeal or a Returning from Dismissal appeal are required to participate in the ACT program. ACT Coaches are trained individuals who are available to support students in their pursuit of academic and personal growth.

During your first semester back to the University, you will be assigned an ACT Coach with whom you have shared experiences or interests.  You will meet with your ACT Coach a minimum of four (4) times to receive ongoing, individualized support toward achieving your academic goals at UNCG. In addition to supporting your transition back to the University, your ACT Coach will assist you with reconnecting to University resources, utilizing University policies, building a professional and academic support network, and developing an academic recovery plan. 

The ACT program will help students to:

  • Achieve academic and personal goals.
  • Balance academic responsibilities with personal obligations.
  • Explore and assess academic and career options.
  • Develop customized academic supports.

OWLS Workshops are offered through the TASP office for students in this program.
