Coaching helps Northern students stay in college

Havre Daily News

A professional coaching program has been successful in reducing the dropout rates at four Montana public colleges — including Montana State University-Northern — statistics that were released Tuesday show.

The coaching is provided through the RevUp Montana Consortium, a four-year federally funded pilot program, that works with nine colleges throughout Montana to equip students with training for high-wage jobs in industries such as manufacturing, energy and diesel where employers are looking for skilled workers.

Since 2014, RevUp has partnered with InsideTrack, a San Francisco vendor, and provided more than a 1,000 students in four state colleges with professional success coaches. In a news release, RevUp officials predict that by December, more than 2,000 students will receive those services.

InsideTrack Partners with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher Initiative to Strengthen First-Generation College Enrollment

SAN FRANCISCO AND WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 19, 2016) — InsideTrack, the student support innovator that has coached more than 1.3 million students across more than 1,600 higher education programs, announced today its partnership with First Lady Michelle Obama’s Reach Higher initiative and Better Make Room campaign to increase college access among first-generation college students.

Reach Higher and Better Make Room announced plans to provide students across the country with personalized information and encouragement about important college and financial aid resources and deadlines through an initiative called Up Next. The student support initiative was announced at the third annual White House Beating the Odds Summit, which celebrates college-bound students who are the first in their families to pursue higher education after high school.

Red tape requirements such as scheduling and financial aid can often prevent students from successfully enrolling in their first year of college. InsideTrack is helping partner institutions reach those incoming students at key moments through text messaging and mobile technology to ensure they complete college enrollment and financial aid tasks.

Through Up Next, students will receive timely messages and notifications from coaches and advisers, helping them to meet critical milestones relating to financial aid, enrollment and course registration.
