    Programs & Services

    Academic Coaching Program

    The Academic Coaching Program is designed to provide specialized one-on-one academic coaching to students at Dean College.
    This fee-based service is available to any Dean College student that will benefit from individualized academic coaching and skill development in the areas of study strategies, including note taking, time management and organization, test preparation, as well as writing, and reading comprehension. 
    With professional assistance from an academic coach, students will build upon their strengths and address areas of academic challenge.


    The Strive4Success (S4S) program is a one-year program that provides students who need additional support with the resources necessary to gain academic independence, self-confidence in academic skill and self-advocacy to meet their academic goals. 

    Accessibility Services 

    At Dean College, we strongly believe in providing the best educational services to each of our students. We offer learning and academic support as well as auxiliary aids and services to qualified students with disabilities through the Office of Accessibility Services.

    Arch Learning Community

    The Dean College Arch Learning Community program is designed for students with diagnosed learning disabilities and/or other learning challenges who would benefit from additional academic support while enrolled in a traditional college curriculum. 
    Through individual academic coaching, Arch-designated courses, and specialized success & career advising, students will work within the program to acquire the necessary skills to be successful in their degree programs. Our staff works with students to develop skills to become active participants in their education and take greater responsibility for their individual role in the learning process.
