College-bound? 3 Reasons to Join “MyCoalition”
October 12, 2021
Stacey Kostell is the CEO of The Coalition for College Access.
Stacey Kostell built a career in College Admissions working at a number of leading US Universities over the last 25 years.
In 2020, Stacey joined The Coalition to help underserved students not only get to college, but also provide them the tools to be successful.
MyCoalition is one such signature tool.
Students can open a MyCoalition account as early as ninth grade, or even as a transfer student. It is easy to open an account by providing a little information about themselves.
According to Stacey, there are 3 Big Reasons a High School Student should have an account on “My Coalition”.
1. Locker - A Place to Store Everything!
By opening an account, a student will have access to what is called a Locker, a free digital storage space.
2. College List - Hear Directly from the Colleges
When a student has an account, they also have the College List. And so as they're thinking about the colleges, they want to attend, they can ask for their information to be shared with colleges, and so they can start getting college advice directly from the colleges.
3. Access to College Advice - 150 Colleges, Counselors, CBOs
MyCoalition has created College Advice with the 150-member Colleges, their Counselor Advisory Board and Community-based Organizations (CBO) to help students along the way. Their advice ranges from “it's time to take an ACT test”, things like how to advocate for yourself, as a freshman “how is GPA calculated at my college”, to “how do I get my first as a student”, etc.
Over 1 million students have taken advantage of MyCoalition over the past 5 years.
