Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Postsecondary Success

Navigating the path to a certificate or degree can be challenging. Many students come to college not completely ready or with credits from one or more institutions and need help plotting their course. We can increase student success by creating student-centered pathways that help students set a course for graduation through redesigned remedial courses and programs, make sure that they stay on that course with technology-enabled advising, ensure that they are learning along the way by using proven digital learning tools, and help them navigate transitions via simpler and more streamlined credit transfer.
