Academic Advising

Guided Pathways Advising at Gateway Community College


Mission and Vision

All community college students, from initial registration to completion, are supported by Guided Pathways (GP) Advisors to establish academic and career goals, receive proactive and individualized academic and holistic supports that result in the timely and equitable completion of credentials that lead to employment, transfer, and family sustainable wages.

Guided Pathways Advising is a dynamic student-centered holistic approach grounded in student development and learning. GP Advisors align advising practices with the diverse and unique needs of each individual student in their caseload. GP Advisors advise, advocate, mentor, support, and coach their caseload to reach their individual goals.


Structure of GP Advising:

  • Upon registration all students (new and continuing) are assigned to a GP Advisor based on their program or area of study.
  • GP Advising does not replace faculty advising. Students are encouraged to connect with their Faculty Advisor based on their program of study and together they support you in reaching your academic, transfer, and career goals. Click Here To Find Your Faculty Advisor
