IU Peer Coaches

Sign up for a Peer Academic Coach

Sign up here to be assigned a PAC for Fall 2019.

Peer Academic Coaches (PACs) are undergraduate students who can help you get “ahead of the curve” in your first year. Your PAC can assist you with:

  • Developing good time-management skills.
  • Study strategies.
  • Setting goals to achieve academic success.
  • Brainstorming ways to get involved and gain experience.
  • Preparing for your academic advising appointments.
  • Connecting with campus resources and learning how to navigate your IU experience.

Signing up for a PAC is a commitment to your own success. If assigned to a PAC, expect to:

  • Meet with your PAC during bi-weekly or monthly one-on-one meetings.
  • Receive outreach from your PAC, including strategies and encouragements.
  • Complete Canvas modules designed for you by your PAC to help you develop skills, learn about resources, and achieve your goals.
  • Have an experienced student behind you from day one!
