The Academic Peer Coaching (APC) program, being piloted during the 2019-2020 academic year and supported by the Division of Student Success, is a collaboration between the Tomás Rivera Center Academic Success Coaching program, Residence Life and Education, and Counseling Services. The purpose of this program is to better meet the needs of undergraduate students living in Alvarez Hall, Chaparral Village, and Laurel Village at UTSA.
The Academic Peer Coaches (APCs) are returning RAs who have accepted the dual role of being RAs for part of their work week and APCs for the other. APCs are successful students who have met certain requirements for the role. They are trained to work with undergraduate students living in the residential communities through one-on-one coaching and facilitating workshops on a variety of academic topics. Topics include time management, reading and notetaking skills, test preparation, and more.

Academic Peer Coaching is the one-on-one process of helping students identify their strengths and weaknesses, then devising a personalized approach to studying. APCs can help students in the residential communities develop skills in time management, reading and notetaking skills, test preparation, and more.
Details about workshops in the residence communities will be announced soon. Meanwhile, please check out the Expert Learner Series happening on Main and Downtown campuses this fall.
These online resources, compiled by the TRC, are designed to provide supplemental academic support. For additional assistance on how to apply any resource you find on this site, please contact us to make an appointment with a Academic Peer Coach.
