Journey Coaches

You decide to return to school after several years in the workforce, or maybe you want to pursue graduate studies. So, you find a program that suits you and apply. You wonder, now what? How do you know you’ve submitted all the right materials? What credits will transfer? How do you register for classes?

When you apply at Anderson University, we won’t leave you wondering. We won’t make you call a dozen departments to find the answers you need. You will be matched with one of our Journey Coaches, a personal academic coach to assist you from the time you apply until you graduate.

What are Journey Coaches, and how do they help you?

Once you apply, a Journey Coach from your area of study will contact you. Your coach will assist you through every stage of the process at AU: obtaining transcripts, transferring credits, creating an educational plan, registering for classes, and navigating financial aid.

Your Journey Coach will check in with you on a monthly basis. You can also contact your coach at any time with questions or concerns. If your coach doesn’t know the answer, he or she will find someone who does.

Our tagline at AU is “Knowledge for the Journey.” While you pursue knowledge for your life’s journey, your coach will help you on your educational journey.

In a nutshell, Journey Coaches make your life easier.

Who gets a Journey Coach?

If you apply to any of our adult studies, online or graduate programs on Anderson’s main campus or University Center of Greenville, you will have a coach.

We understand that, as an adult student, you face challenges in pursuing your education. We know that you may shoulder family and work obligations that require your time and energy. That’s why our Journey Coaches work to make the process at AU as smooth and low-stress as possible for you.

Why does AU offer Journey Coaches?

Our mission at AU is to demonstrate Christ-centered, student-oriented service. We want you to feel welcomed on our campuses, in your online classes, and through your interactions with administration. The Journey Coach program is another way for us to say that you, the individual, matter to us. We want to help you succeed.
