AmeriCorps College Completion Coaches -Lakeland
The AmeriCorps College Completion Coaches will combat issues of persistence and completion in Ohio’s community colleges by providing hands-on guidance and assistance to community college students on campuses in Ohio. It is expected that those served will demonstrate higher credit hour accumulation, higher persistence rates, and higher college completion rates compared to those not provided intensive college completion coaching. Researchers agree that if students pass certain milestones on a college-completion path, they will be more likely to finish that path: students must complete developmental coursework, subsequently enroll in and pass the corresponding college-level course, accumulate college-level credits in a timely fashion, complete general education courses, and return for a second year. Along the way, on-track indicators have been identified that help indicate whether or not the student is on track for these milestones, such as enrolling in classes over the summer, attending full-time and not part-time, dropping fewer than 10-20% of courses, registering for courses on time and maintaining an adequate GPA. Researcher recommendations point to implementing formal on-time completion plans with students in order to monitor these stop out points, and encourage students to stay a particular course. Ensuring students have that plan and proactively coaching them through its completion is exactly what the AmeriCorps College Completion Coaches will do.
