What Can You Expect from Your Personal Success Coach?


Our personal success coaches will mentor, counsel, and advise you as you navigate your bachelor degree completion program. Every student will work with their coach to create a Personal Education Plan (PEP) that identifies their goals for the program and then maps out how they can achieve their goals. Your PEP is revisited and revised as move through the program to ensure you achieve your goals. While your personal success coach works directly with you and serves as your guide on a variety of topics, they will also guide you towards resources that are available to you to help address some of these challenges.

How will the program delivery impact me?

Your online experience is enhanced with the flexibility that comes with the Pathway program. From engaging with classmates to completing coursework around your busy life, you will quickly realize nothing is stopping you from completing your goals. When you become a student, if you have challenges with coursework, you can always connect with our dedicated faculty who are ready to provide advice and support to help pave your pathway to success.

Learn at Your Pace

Our learning format helps break up your course segments into different presentation modalities that allow you to learn in an asynchronous format, which simply means that you can attend class when you want, and pick the best times for you to focus on education.  Whether you are caring for a friend or relative, a working professional, or taking the kids to an after-school activity, you now have the ability to schedule your coursework in the morning, in the evening, or even on the weekend.  Our classes also offer synchronous (live online) sessions as well, but they are not required.  The Pathway Bachelor Degree Completion program puts you in control of how you plan your learning.

Work Directly with Faculty

As you progress through your classes, it is important to remember that our faculty is invested in helping you succeed.  We encourage you to get to know your faculty and interact with them during office hours and many can also be contacted via email and phone.  Merrimack faculty work with students often, and have helped students through various challenges.  We encourage you to use them as an additional resource as you progress through your program.

Network with Classmates

Online learning presents you with a unique opportunity to engage with your classmates. As some online learners are working professionals, this program gives you a platform to interact with fellow students on best practices, or to simply network with each other.  As you continue to build engagement with your classmates, you may even look to progress through the completion of your degree together.   This valuable class interaction may even help to further enhance your overall Merrimack experience.
