What are the Minimum Requirements for a student to enroll into the CPP?

Must have a minimum GPA of 2.5
Must seek to attend an accredited institution
Must be willing to complete the assigned homework provided by the HIFE Coach

Do coaches review the FAFSA for the family?
The coach can.  Complete it, save it but don’t submit, and send it to the coach.  Also, the family can print a blank copy, complete it, and send it to the coach before submitting anything online.  It is a good idea to have them review it! 
Will the coach help with other specifics from the college?
Yes, but the family needs to ask for help from the coach if they receive something from the university, etc.  The college will not communicate directly with the coach.  It is the family’s responsibility to communicate everything to the coach pertaining to the student’s education.
Does the coach communicate with the parents?
Yes, the parents are copied on all communication to and from the coach.

How many scholarships does a coach get for the student, and how much work does this involve?
The coach may have a list of 5 to 10 scholarships at a time depending on the time of year and what grade the student is in.  The student will just need to be cautious of deadlines.  Making a schedule may be suggested since the student may need to dedicate 2 to 3 hours a week-some weeks.  It won’t interfere with their school work.  If it becomes an issue, communicate with the coach.  Communication is key. 
If the student is a freshman in high school, how does the coach help him/her?
The coach can make recommendations on time-management but know that the coach will not tutor the student during high school. Coaches recommend but don’t do homework for the student or write essays, etc. The coach also helps student select the correct courses and assess the student’s interests and skills with the Heartland’s assessment software, amongst many other things.
