Guided Pathways

Pathways Management

An Easy Online Database for Managing and Displaying your College Meta-Majors, Pathways & Program Maps.

Guided Pathways

Guided Pathways provide students with clear, educationally coherent program maps that include specific course sequences, progress milestones, and program learning outcomes.

Meta Majors

Meta Majors are categories of degrees and certificates with overlapping program requirements. Students within a 'Meta Major' are able to explore the fundamentals in their area of study and easily pivot into related programs.

College Planning

Program plans enable colleges to provide predictable schedules, frequent feedback, and embedded, discipline-specific support to help students stay on track and complete their programs more efficiently.

about Guided Pathways

Online Database of Student Maps to Success

Skyline College, College of San Mateo and Cañada College are three of twenty California Community Colleges selected to design and implement structured academic and career pathways for all incoming students by 2019.

We had a need for an online database system that would display our Meta-Majors, Pathways and Student Program Maps. After significant research we could not find an out-of-the-box solution that fit our needs. The ITS web service department collaborated over two months to create a custom web application. We wanted to create a system that would work for any college and was independant of the ERP (Banner, PeopleSoft) or Degree-audit system.

We are proud to present you with our robust, mobile-friendly, home-grown solution. It includes a password-protected, easy-to-use, admin back-end for your college staff to populate the data and dynamically generates a public facing guided pathways website for students.
