Success Coaches

Success Coaching = learning how to do college

Being a college student is a learned skill. You need:

  • Effective study habits
  • Time management skills
  • Ability to balance academic and personal commitments
  • Goal setting and prioritization skills
  • Focus and concentration
  • Understanding of how to navigate and access resources

All of these take practice. A Success Coach can help you develop these skills and more to make sure you get the most out of college. Best of all, tools you gain will serve you through your career and life.

How do I meet with a Success Coach?


Schedule a free, one-on-one appointment with Success Coach Carrie Bayless at or by calling 206-546-6956.

You can also attend Virtual Drop-In Hours on Wednesdays between 9:30am and 11:30am.

Quarterly workshops

  • Free (with free food provided)
  • Offered quarterly
  • Open to everyone
  • Walk-in; no sign-up required
  • A great way to meet other motivated students

Check the advising calendar for workshop dates and times as well as other advising and counseling events you may find helpful.
