Onondaga Community College has received approximately $3 million from the United States Department of Education which it will use to help increase completion rates. The project is called Guided Pathways to Success, or GPS. Program goals include:
- 7 percentage point increase in course completion rates among developmental students.
- 8 percentage point increase in fall-to-fall retention rates of first-time, full-time students.
- 5 percentage point increase in degree completion rates by 2022.
The GPS project is the subject of our monthly podcast, Higher Ed News You Can Use from Onondaga Community College. Our guest is Dr. Julie White, OCC’s Senior Vice President for Student Engagement and Learning Support. You can listen to the podcast by clicking here.
