Success Boston is a city-wide college completion initiative that provides resources aimed at doubling the college graduation rate of Boston Public School (BPS) students. The University has formed a Success Boston team of university administrators, advisors, and coaches from non-profit community agencies to work with BPS graduates. The community agencies working with UMass Boston students are Bottom Line, Freedom House, and TERI. Our coaches can help students with:
• Connections to academic and career advising and goal setting,
• Time management and personal organization,
• Assistance getting tutoring and other academic support services,
• Support through non-academic challenges,
• Referrals to personnel for assistance with financial aid, work-study, and scholarship searches.
