Pathways design analysis   

Pathways are widely embraced as a student success strategy.
Unfortunately, many institutions struggle to operationalize them.
As a result, pathways are often a good idea that have more promise
than real impact on student completions.

Use Data to Build and Deliver Pathways 

Moving from concept to reality isn’t easy. Opinions vary on how ‘guided’
pathways should be. Smaller programs don’t have the critical mass of
enrollments to support multiple options for degree requirements. Differing
core requirements in various programs can considerably delay completions
when students change majors.
Ad Astra can help you work through these complexities and controversies.
We deliver the data and best practices that enable you to move your pathways
initiative from concept to reality.
