CAP Coaches and Staff

Career & Academic Planning (CAP) Coaches are a group of professionals trained to guide you toward your career and academic goals. They are here to help you with academic planning, major selection, career exploration and more.

Each coach has a specific group of undergraduate majors to serve or an area of expertise. Find your Coach and get guidance through a genuine conversation about your exceptional life outcome.

To schedule an appointment with a coach, please call or stop by the IDEA Center.

Drop-in Hours: 

Drop-in hours are often used for 10- to 15-minute sessions around pressing questions such as dropping or withdrawing from a class, talking through transfer credits, adding or changing a major, or exploring possibilities for an internship.

Monday and Tuesday: 2-4 p.m. 
Wednesday and Thursday: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.

*Note: During the first week of the semester, drop-in hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.
