Academic Coaching & Personal Tutoring Plans

Academic Coaching provides one-on-one sessions between the student and academic coach with an emphasis on the student’s specific academic needs, for example, course material and skills pertaining to content areas including STEM, foundational mathematics, reading, and writing. Academic Coaches may meet with instructors, department chairs, coordinators, and directors to discuss students’ content specific needs.

Located in The Hub, the services of the Academic Coaches provide communications regarding needs and relationship building among the student, tutor, and academic coach; this is inclusive of booking Personal Tutoring Plans and providing outreach to other departments such as SOAR, OSS/SI, Counseling, UAC, etc.

Academic Care and Engagement Services (ACES)

ACES is a university-wide academic probation support program that ensures students on academic probation (CGPAs below 2.0) receive mandatory, regularly scheduled tutoring, counseling, academic advisement, and academic coaching. Participation in the ACES program may help students to exit academic probation, continue to receive financial aid, successfully appeal academic dismissal, learn about the student support services available, and graduate from NJCU in a timely manner.

The ACES Team includes the Office of the Provost; The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management; Office of Centralized Tutoring and Academic Support Programming; University Advisement Center (UAC); Office of Student Outreach and Retention (SOAR); ASCEND Program; TRiO Learning Community Program (TLC); Opportunity Scholarship Program (OSP); Athletics; and more.

Learning Assistance

The Learning Assistance (LA) model provides embedded tutors in classrooms where skills acquisition, such as language, writing, and reading, is the focus. Trained embedded tutors play an active role in the class under the guidance of the instructor and offer one-on-one and group tutoring support outside the classroom during Hub hours of operation.
