The Completion Center aims to provide the support, resources and accountability that students need to be successful. We understand that there is more to students’ lives than college, and that sometimes “life” can get in the way of achieving educational goals. Success Coaches meet with students one-on-one to help them develop their strengths, discover new strategies and resources, and come up with a plan to reach their goals.

Mission Statement

The Completion Center at McLennan Community College fosters academic and personal success by providing a student centered network of support, cultivating opportunities for growth and empowerment and serving as a resource for faculty and staff.

  • What is Success Coaching?

    Success Coaches help you succeed during your time as a student at MCC. Your relationship with a Success Coach involves listening, questioning, observing, feedback, encouragement, support and accountability - all of which are focused on YOUR goals. Coaching is NOT therapy. Therapy explores origins of emotional or psychological issues and tends to be more intensive and long term. Success Coaches address behaviors, values, motivators and to some degree contributing emotional factors. Success Coaches focus on helping you discover actions that will get positive results in and outside of the classroom.
