Amarillo College's main focus is our students and their success. Because of this focus, Amarillo College aims to provide as many opportunities and resources to students that aid in the process of completing college. This concept is manifested in what we call a Success Network. Your personal network consists of your academic advisor, your instructors, your Success Coach, plus any connections with additional staff and faculty. Learn more about each below.

Academic Advising

Advisors focus on helping you define your course path while here at Amarillo College. You will meet with your advisor to select the courses you need to complete in order to receive your degree, certificate and/or to transfer.  


The faculty's primary focus is providing the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in your chosen major. It is important that students remain in communication with their instructors in order to stay caught up in course materials and important information. 

Success Coach

A Success Coach's main priority is you. Your coach will assist you 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. 

Your Success Network will primarily communicate with you through our Student Engagement Portal.
