Peer Success Coaching Program

Apply to Meet with a PSC

The Spring 2019 application to have a Peer Success Coach is no longer available. If you are a student who would like academic assistance for the remainder of the semester, one of our professional staff members would love to meet with you for an academic consultation. You can find more information on academic consultations here

The application to have a Peer Success Coach for Fall 2019 will be available in early August. If you have any questions about the program or applying to have a Peer Success Coach, please feel free to email academicsuccess@purdue.edu

What is a PSC?

A PSC is a point-person who can offer guidance to students as they navigate life at Purdue. PSCs are primarily upperclassmen who receive training on coaching their peers through many of the same challenges they have faced. They function as guides, listeners, and motivational partners, but not as tutors, instructors, parents, or academic advisors. Because they are peers, PSCs work as a neutral party to help students gain insight and ideas.

PSCs can guide you through...

  • Studying for exams
  • Connecting with campus resources and academic advisors
  • Finding motivation
  • Getting involved in campus activities and organizations
  • Managing your time
  • Exploring career options
  • Applying for student employment
  • And more!

PSCs are here to...

  • Listen to your concerns
  • Point you in the right direction
  • Help you set and achieve your own academic, social, and personal goals while at Purdue
