About College Completion Corps

MCAN's College Completion Corps trains and places AmeriCorps members on partner college campuses across Michigan. As a Completion Coach, each full-time member serves a campus-defined cohort of 100-150 students who are first-generation, low-income, and/or students of color — including Michigan Reconnect students — with a focus on college persistence and completion. This work is in alignment with Michigan's Sixty by 30 goal.

Program and Member Activities

Completion Coaches advocate for students and foster connections, integrate into the campus support structure, and engage in data-informed monitoring to direct their outreach.

Together, coaches and students:

  • Create a completion plan that will outline a strategy for FAFSA completion,
  • Identify a student's support team,
  • Structure a schedule for class attendance and coursework submission, and
  • Define a plan for course selection and registration for the next semesters.

Completion Coaches engages student over the course of the academic year, including one-on-one meetings to advance on benchmarks and address challenges that arise; group activities and meetings to boost sense of belonging and self-efficacy; and technology-based interaction (text, email and phone) to bring attention to important dates and deadlines.
