The My Academic Pathway (MAP) toolkit–a suite of tools to assist college students in selecting an educational pathway based on their personal interests–has successfully helped 83% of community college students enroll in programs consistent with their interests. This project will modify MAP to reach a larger audience, particularly students in continuing education programs, with a goal of reducing both student program changes and the time required to obtain a credential.
