Student Success Coaching Appointments
Coaching appointments are scheduled for one hour, and students can select either an in-person or virtual appointment when they schedule on EAB Navigate.

If you are feeling ill or experiencing any Covid symptoms and have scheduled an in-person appointment, please email Emily Tuttle (firstname.lastname@example.org) to switch the appointment to Zoom or use "EAB Navigate" to reschedule.
After the initial appointment, the coach and the student will decide on a follow-up plan for accountability, either checking in over email or scheduling a subsequent appointment.
