WHO Are the Success Coaches?

Students matter at Tri-County (TCTC)!  Success Coaches assist with orientations and offer individual appointments to help students make a smooth transition to college.

To help bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be, your Success Coach will: 

  • Provide connections to campus services and resources
  • Encourage self-responsibility for learning
  • Support your academic development

You can celebrate accomplishments and share obstacles with your Success Coach, who will help you build a foundation for success in college and life.
