A Flexible, Modern Approach to Course Enrollment

Increase student success with Guided Pathways


Meet Student Expectations

Our guided pathways options provide institutions with the system flexibility needed to create individual learning paths. We support traditional sequencing as well as guided pathways where students follow their own step. 

Guided Pathway Framework

  1. Clarify pathways to end goals – A Guided Pathways campus simplifies students’ choices with default program maps that show a clear pathway to completion.
  2. Help students choose and enter pathways – Aligning foundation skills coursework with program of study.
  3. Help students stay on path – By providing flexible class options, you can help students continue when life gets in the way.
  4. Ensure students are learning – Develop soft skills and aid students in continuing their education beyond graduation.

“Student success is first and foremost our priority from a leadership perspective at Lone Star College. One of the programs I am most excited about is our Guided Programs of Study project, laddering nicely to Lone Star’s core mission of student success. By connecting the dots from academic planning to technology, this project will help our students stay on track and graduate in a timely manner.”
