College Success Program is Underway

Alexis Hobbs, MGP alumnus and freshman at Spelman College, is already seeing returns from the College Success Program.

College Success Coaches already making an impact on MGP students

The College Success Program, launched this fall, is gathering key data while forging relationships with MGP students. This new program works with students during their senior year of high school as well as throughout college to provide the hands-on, proactive and data driven guidance they need to earn degrees.

Early results

Just one month into this comprehensive program, College Success Coaches have successfully connected with 100% of the MGP Class of 2018, who are in the first semester of their freshman year at more than 50 schools around the country. One of the main focuses of these early “reach-outs” was for coaches to assist students with their class schedules to ensure they are getting adequate course credits to meet graduation requirements. Coaches also got to know the students and ensured there were no financial gaps.

During her October check-in, Alexis Hobbs, a 2018 MGP graduate and current freshman at Spelman College, was introduced to her coach and was able to secure funds for her study abroad program.

“My College Success Coach Zubin has been very helpful and responsive during my first three months on campus,” Alexis said.  “Over the past few weeks he has provided me with a list of different options that could help fund my study abroad program coming this spring, Zubin has been nothing less than supportive and making sure I am staying on track.”

Establishing a pipeline for data-driven success

This month, coaches have also been working to on-board the current class of 2019 into the MGP student portal, a customized online database used by MGP to track crucial student information. 90% of students have already been fully entered into the database and coaches have collected information including SAT scores and high school transcripts to assess students’ admit-ability into college. Next week, coaches will use this data during one-on-one meetings to assess their individual college goals and begin strategies for how to achieve them.
