What is GPS?

Graduation Positioning Strategy (GPS) assists returning college students in developing a roadmap for completing their associate degree. Returning to college can be challenging and this program is designed to support returning students as they navigate a path to graduation!

How does GPS provide support to returning students?

To help GPS Scholars to successfully navigate their educational experience, all students will have access to the following support services:

  • Education Navigator: The Education Navigator is the key contact person who works with GPS Scholars to create personalized Navigation Plans. The Education Navigator helps GPS Scholars to access the services they need to be successful as returning college students.
  • Navigation Plan:  The Navigation Plan serves as a guide that specifies what courses the GPS Scholars will take each semester and includes a projected graduation date. Students work with the Education Navigator to develop Navigation Plans that meet their unique needs.
