What is a Success Coach? And what is ReUp Education?
Bellevue University believes in the value of individualized support. For that reason, we have partnered with ReUp Education to provide an additional layer of service for all readmitting students. In addition to your faculty, SFS Counselor, and Financial Aid Counselor, you have a Success Coach who will begin working with you during the readmission process and will continue to offer you support all the way to your finish line: graduation! Your Coach’s role is to ensure your questions are being answered, that you are aware of administrative processes and policies, and that, ultimately, you begin courses and graduate on your desired timeline. You can also rely on your coach for help with financial planning, connecting with a community of Bellevue students, and developing a success plan for degree completion. You are not required to meet or call on a recurring basis with your Coach, but you will need to connect at least once during the readmission process and each session.
