Guided Pathways Information & Resources

Happy graduates and current students side by side

What is Guided Pathways All About?

Community Colleges are designed to facilitate access and tend to focus on providing a wide variety of individual courses rather than clearly structured programs. According to the state student success scorecard, only 43% of Butte College students attempting to achieve an outcome (graduation, certificate and/or transfer) actually do within six years.

This site shows that our attempt at Guided Pathways is intended to provide structured pedagogy, processes and systems that support student connection, entry, progress and completion of certificates and degrees, or support transfer to four-year institutions with junior standing in a major. These highly structured student experiences encourage completion.

A Guided Pathways Concept does not limit student choice. Instead, it provides opportunities to explore while supporting the likelihood of completion.
