North Central is participating in the Guided Pathways project through the Michigan Center for Student Success. The Guided Pathways project's goal is to assist students with defining benchmarks from the start of their college career, help to simplify their choices with clear direction, help students choose and successfully enter a program, and provide a means of monitoring student progress, all while providing encouragement and feedback as frequently as necessary.
