University of Colorado at Boulder
Collegiate Coaching offers all of their services to students who attend the University of Colorado at Boulder . This includes, academic, executive functioning, therapeutic coaching, supervised independent living and psychotherapy support.
CU Boulder is a public university located in the heart of Boulder, Colorado. CU Boulder is our recommended school for students living in Boulder who may not have a car due to the proximity of classes and resources to all of town. It’s known to be a superb research university, but that’s not all it offers. CU Boulder has strong programs in a variety of disciplines, offering undergraduate students 78 degree programs.
The University of Colorado at Boulder offers many different forms of support for their students. A number of our young men and women at Collegiate Coaching Services utilize the many services that CU has to offer, and we work closely with various programs on campus to support our clients in achieving both academic and overall success.
The ACCESS program enables non-degree students to take Boulder main campus undergraduate or graduate courses for personal or professional development. Some students use the ACCESS program to work toward enrolling in a degree program in the future.
Collegiate Coaching Services has a collaborative relationship with the office of Continuing Education. They utilize CCS as a referral source for students, just as we refer many of our clients wanting to get back into school to Continuing Education. This office works to expand educational opportunities to those who may not fit into the traditional student profile. Continuing Education offers evening, online, and daytime enrollment options for nondegree (guest) students. Continuing Education students enroll in CU courses, earn credit and may pursue eventual admission into CU Boulder as degree seeking (matriculated) students. We often recommend this program to our clients due to the variety of class options (night classes, smaller classes) that may more effectively fit their learning styles.
Our coaches and clients also work regularly with CU Boulder’s Disability Services. The Disability Services representatives work to provide students with all available opportunities to achieve academic success. They work closely with students with a wide range of disabilities to provide academic accommodations and support. Examples of academic accommodations that our young men and women have been granted include extended test-taking time, distraction-free test-taking environments, assigned note-takers, and preferential seating. Disability Services also offers a variety of different courses and programs to help students who are academically struggling. Utilizing the services at the Disability Services takes a good amount of effort and initiative on the student’s part, and our coaches work with our clients to hold them accountable for receiving as much support as possible. Disability Services representatives often refer students who may wish to receive additional support to Collegiate Coaching Services.
One of the most popular CU Boulder programs for our CCS clients, both students and those who are not currently enrolled, is the Collegiate Recovery Center (CRC). The CRC provides activities and support for young men and women recovering from alcohol, substance, or any other addiction. They offer a fun and supportive environment with a mission of providing sober activities as an alternative to the typical college party. From free bowling, to game night, to yoga, there are always people at the CRC to hang out with. This provides our clients with a healthy social network and community connection.
Collegiate Coaching Services is also a referral source for the Student of Concern Team at CU Boulder. The Student of Concern teams works with CU students who are facing difficult situations in their lives. Their role is to identify students exhibiting concerning behaviors and help connect them to both on-campus and off-campus support. Examples of warning signs they may look for are erratic behavior, intentions to harm oneself or others, signs of distress, and substance abuse-among many others.
For those students returning to college with a less than adequate GPA or a desire to take non-credit classes, we encourage the young adult and their parents to explore these programs: CU Boulder Continuing Education and ACCESS.
