Cal-SOAP Success Coaches

Cal-SOAP Success Coaches work with school counselors to support students through the financial aid and college admission processes and raise awareness of financial aid and college eligibility requirements. Success Coaches keep students informed of their progress and prepared to take their next step towards successful, affordable postsecondary education.

Through the College Success Coaches, students will have access to:

  • Financial aid and college access information presented through a combination of group workshops, information campaigns, and one-on-one advising sessions
  • Direct support for FAFSA/CADAA applications and creation of FSA ID and their Webgrants4Students account
  • Financial Aid Offer Letter interpretation and college affordability assessment
  • Information about college application and enrollment timelines, deadlines, and eligibility requirements
  • College and scholarship application support
  • Progress reports informing them of where they are in the financial aid and college admissions processes and what their next steps should be
