Peer Academic Coaches

Peer Academic Coaches provide guidance in reviewing departmental websites, understanding TCNJ policies and procedures, navigating PAWS, and preparing for departmental advising appointments. They also meet with students about time management, study skills, and more. This program, which strives to add an additional layer of support to the TCNJ community, enriches the current student-advisor relationship by allowing for more meaningful conversations related to a student’s field of study.

Peer Academic Coaches are located at the Advising Bar in the lobby of Roscoe West Hall.
