Bachelor of Coastal Education is a mentoring activity for children with a lower middle-class economy in coastal villages who wish to continue their education at tertiary institutions. The purpose of this study is to describe the use of coastal undergraduate mentoring in reducing dropout rates. The research was conducted using a descriptive-qualitative approach with the case study method. The research subjects were 53 high school students in coastal villages. The research was conducted for 3 years in 4 coastal villages in Kutai Kartanegara, East Kalimantan. The results showed that this assistance was well received by the community, as evidenced by the enthusiasm of the community in the second and third years of the program. Furthermore, the success of implementing this program can contribute to reducing the dropout rate because it has enabled children who were threatened with dropping out of school to continue their tertiary education. With details, namely, in the 1st year, there were 8 people; in the 2nd year, there were 8 people; and in the 3rd year, there were 26 people who went on to college with scholarships from the government and BUMN. Program integration is carried out through academic, motivational, and technical assistance periodically for 6 months. However, the implementation of the program should not only focus on students who are continuing their studies at tertiary institutions but also provide other skills for those who are more interested in working directly so that they still meet standards in the labor market.
