What is a journey coach?

You decide to return to school after several years in the workforce, or maybe you want to pursue graduate studies. So, you find a program that suits you and apply. You wonder, now what? How do you know you’ve submitted all the right materials? What credits will transfer? How do you register for classes?

When you apply at Anderson University, we won’t leave you wondering. We won’t make you call a dozen departments to find the answers you need. Laurie will be your personal academic coach to assist you from the time you apply until you graduate.
