Success Coaches

What is a Success Coach?

Amarillo College has staff members, Success Coaches, who's primary goal is to connect with students on an individual basis and provide direct support during a student's time at Amarillo College. Coaches will reach out at the beginning of each semester as a way to establish communication with you, then will continue communication, as needed, in efforts to support their students during the struggles and accomplishments of college and life. 

How Do I Know Who My Success Coach Is?

Success Coaches are assigned by AC communities, so a coach will have all Creative Arts students in their caseload, while another coach will have all of the STEM students.

You can find your success coach and their information by following the steps below:

1. Log into your AC Connect account

2. Under the heading "AC Connect Classes", click on Student Engagement Portal 

3. On your main page on the Student Engagement Portal, you will see your Success Coach listed, as well as your Academic Advisor.
