Roane State Community College

Advising

Roane State students are each assigned a Success Coach for their first semester. Once students meet specific criteria for success, they will then be assigned a faculty advisor, who can provide them with more specific guidance related to their area of study. Students must make an appointment to meet with their advisor and receive their registration pin number. Roane State students can find out who their success coach or faculty advisor are along with their contact information by logging into their RaiderNet account.

Student Portal

Students can use RaiderNet to monitor their grades, financial aid requirements, classes and to contact their success coach or academic advisor.

Verification Process

Roane State students are each assigned a Success Coach who helps guide them through each of their requirements, including verification. When students are selected for verification, coaches receive a ticket from the financial aid office with an explanation about why the student was selected and what documents are required from them. Coaches then reach out to students within a day of receiving the ticket, generally through email, and then with a follow-up text.

Students can also check their student portal, RaiderNet, to check their financial aid status and to access the required documents. Students can click on a link entitled, “Outstanding Financial Aid Requirements for the XXXX-XXXX Aid Year,” to access a list of required documents with additional information about how to obtain the documents. All documents are submitted directly to the coaches, and they check in weekly with their students through text and email if they still have outstanding documentation.
