Navigating the college landscape for the first time can be challenging, and the Discovery Scholars Program is here to help. DSP students are assigned a college coach who is there to assist them during their time at UT Austin. Whether it be deciding on a major, discussing ways to improve study habits, or just a friendly check-in, a DSP coach is an invaluable resource for those times when a student needs to talk to someone for guidance in a safe and supportive setting.
Students can schedule an appointment with their coach through DSAT.
First year students will meet with their assigned college coach twice a semester. Topics of discussion include, but are not limited to:
As students transition out of the School of Undergraduate Studies and into their new college, they will still have a college coach assigned to them. Students can meet with their coach on an individualized basis, and they retain access to all of the same services they received when they first entered DSP.
Attending UT Austin is an exciting experience, with endless possibilities and the chance to learn about oneself as a student and an individual. Like any journey, there may be unexpected obstacles and forks in the road along the way. Think of a DSP coach as a helpful guide along the trail of self-discovery, steering students in the right direction.
