Success Boston is a citywide 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 nonprofit 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
