Your prospective students have chosen your institution. Let's set them up for success. InsideTrack Strong Start Coaching helps bridge the gap from the time a student is admitted into your institution through the first semester of classes. Strong Start Coaching guides students through the beginning of their college careers, showing them how to manage their busy schedules and preparing them to overcome potential challenges that could keep them from continuing on the right foot. Using a strategic combination of personalized support and adaptive technology, Strong Start Coaching puts your students in prime position for a rewarding academic future. 



Strong Start Coaching utilizes the uCoach® technology platform to provide personalized coaching tailored to the student’s unique needs via multiple channels. Through this program, institutions can:

  • Establish a personal connection and start building a relationship with the student upon enrollment
  • Connect students with institutional resources prior to the first day of class
  • Show students how to manage their busy schedules
  • Prepare students to overcome potential challenges that could keep them on track
  • Engage with students on their terms, the way they prefer through multichannel communication

We know that each institution is unique.
