PATHWAY MODELS COMPARED
Self-Guided (Status Quo)
Guided Pathways
Unclear paths to student goals
Clear roadmaps to student goals
Too many choices
Default, whole-program maps
Intake designed to sort and
schedule students
Intake redesigned as “on-ramp”
to program of study
Schedules unpredictable
Consistent, consolidated schedules
Students’ progress not tracked
Progress tracking, regular
feedback & support
Poor alignment between ccs and
universities; and w/ high schools
Bridges to college programs from
hs, strong transfer pathways
GPS: Essential Components
1. Default Academic Degree Maps
2. Meta-Majors
3. Aligned Mathematics
4. Consolidated and Consistent
Course Scheduling
5. Proactive Advising

ACADEMIC MAPS: 4 essential components – the narrative,
sample schedule, milestones and employment opportunities
The narrative explains the use
of academic maps and any
specific information about
degree requirements,
including admissions
requirements
The sample schedule outlines
which courses should be
taken in which specific term
in order to satisfy all
requirements
The milestones identify critical
courses for timely progress and the
last semester in which they can be
completed for on-time graduation.
Critical grades for Milestone
courses may be included.
