Achieve Your Academic Goals
No matter where you are on your academic journey, the Achieving the Promise Academy (ATPA) supports your success here at MC. In and out of the classroom, ATPA's Academic Coaches can help you build on your strengths and target areas for improvement so you can excel academically and achieve your full potential.
Participating in academic coaching has been shown to help students achieve their academic goals, build their confidence, pass their classes, improve their grades, save money, and stay on track to graduate or transfer on time—and it's free and open to any student registered for courses at MC.

Coaching for Course Success
Embedded academic coaching is offered in specific sections of courses that have been historically challenging for students to pass. When you register for a course with ATPA support, you'll have a specialized embedded coach that can help you with that course's assignments, exams, and more.Learn More about Embedded Academic Coaching
