The Texas Education Agency explains that “Pathways ensure that students are prepared for success in college and careers in higher wage, in-demand fields.”

Ranger College is one of many participating schools in the Association of Community College’s efforts to create a powerful infrastructure that leads all students from high school to a college degree.  The Pathways program strives to eliminate barriers to education and increase efficiency in the advising process.

How It Works

Pathways is a program designed to create more college graduates in the following ways:

  • Improve communication with counselors at high schools.
  • Connect high school “endorsements” directly to Ranger College degree plans.
  • Advise students on course registration with specific emphasis on their career choice.
  • Ensure that students avoid taking electives that do not apply to their chosen degree.
  • Educate college advisors, high school counselors, and career mentors to improve efficiency.
  • Remove barriers to  success in all aspects of the student experience (e.g., financial aid, tutoring, ESL support, et cetera).
  • Provide professional development to improve customer service.
