South Central College (SCC) has received a $2,018,809 grant from the United States Department of Education (DoED) to advance guided learning pathways for adult learners age 21 and over and underrepresented students. The grant, which is funded through DoED’s Title III Strengthening Institutions Program, begins October 1, 2021 and continues for five years.

“Guided learning pathways will provide our students with a roadmap for success in their area of interest and ensure the classes they are taking are relevant to their program of study,” said SCC President Annette Parker. “These guided learning pathways will help all students successfully progress through their chosen academic program and will be especially helpful for adult learners and underrepresented students.”

Underrepresented students include first generation college students, low income and students of color.
