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 will:
- 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.
It is estimated that Completion Coaches will engage with each student for 16 hours over the course of the academic year. These interactions will include 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 build focus on dates and deadlines.
Each member is also responsible for tracking the engagement of at least 10 student volunteers, participating in either National Days of Service or campus-sponsored service activities.
