The pathways require that college classes are taken starting the junior year of high school, utilizing summer classes, and good communications with a college advisor. Pathways are set up for many different programs. Two types of pathways exist: 1) a transfer pathway that helps students as they move to a four-year degree and 2) a career pathway that provides career training ending with an associate’s degree or diploma.


Note: Pathways listed are for students in the Central tier of the WNCC service area. Students in the Northern or Southern tiers should contact CollegeNOW!
