This study offers insight into the benefits of academic and career coaching courses for academically at-risk international students at a Mid-Western religious affiliated four-year private institution. It also explored how they relate to the perceived future academic success of international students. This study informs how academic coaching services can be designed to meet their unique needs so that future international students can thrive and succeed in U.S. higher education systems. Data was collected through qualitative in person interviews with current or former international students who were asked to participate in an academic and career-coaching course. This study revealed that despite the overall positive outcomes from participating in the academic and career-coaching course there were persisting challenges unique to international student experiences that were not directly addressed in the course.
