Post-Admit Checklist (College of Coastal Georgia-2023)

Strategy/Project Name: 
Post-Admit Checklist
Momentum Area: 
Data & Communications
Strategy/Project Description: 

The College will create a roadmap to guide students on all the steps they need to take and the information they need to learn after they are admitted to the College, to ensure a successful start of their college career at Coastal.

Activity Status: 
Evaluation/Assessment plan: 

Evaluation Plan and measures: Completion of a dynamic checklist that guides students after admissions, based on certain student characteristics


Development Stage: Number of checklists developed for the different student populations.

After implementation: Checklist completion rate per student population.

Baseline measure (for each KPI):

Development Stage: 1 checklist developed out of 6 populations identified (as of 10/26/2023).

After implementation: TBD

Current/most recent data (for each KPI):

Development Stage: 1 checklist developed out of 6 populations identified (as of 10/26/2023).

After implementation: Data will be available once checklists are fully implemented

Goal or targets (for each KPI):

Development Stage: Completion of checklists for all identified populations.

After implementation: This value will be determined after the checklists are in use for at least one term.

Time period/duration: Completion of development expected by the end of the 2023-2024 academic year. At that point, checklists will be launched to students. Fall 2024 is expected to be the first term of use by students.

Progress and Adjustments: 

The Student Success and Completion team created a subcommittee to focus on this project. The subcommittee has met regularly. First, to discuss the scope of this project and identify a scalable structure to maintain the checklists accurate and updated. Next, the members of the subcommittee were tasked with identifying the different activities and informational items that were important for the successful transition of an admitted student to the start of classes, with a focus on their specific units.
No adjustments have been identified at this point.

Plan for the Year Ahead: 

As of October 2023, the checklist for one of the identified populations (New Freshman) has been completed and the work continues with the rest of the remaining populations. Once the checklists are complete, they will be posted online on the College’s website. Additionally, customized checklists will be assigned to students in their portal based on their population.

Challenges and Support: 

This project relies heavily on the participation of several members from the campus community. Although they have been active participants to this point, we recognize that there are competing priorities that could affect their ability to participate in the future.

Additionally, the Office of Admissions has  printed marketing materials that may not be in total alignment with the new checklists being developed. Although the website is easily updated, printed materials present a challenge that we are actively discussing.
