According to the SBCTC, Washington’s Guided Pathways is a research-based approach that simplifies choices for students.
Courses are grouped together to form clear paths through college and into careers, whether students enter those careers directly after graduation or transfer to a university for more study in their chosen fields. Students get intensive, targeted advising to choose a path, stay on the path, learn what they need to know and graduate.
In Washington state, our Guided Pathways efforts are focused on helping more of our students — especially low-income, first-generation students and students of color — earn credentials to prepare them for entry into higher-paying, high-demand fields with value in the labor market.
Find out more about Washington State’s Guided Pathway efforts on the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges website.
