This bill would mandate that high school counselors inform students about lower division classes that must be taken for certain majors as well as, dual credit programs and other college preparation programs offered.
The bill would also establish the Texas guided pathways program to inform and support current and prospective students at institutions of higher education by providing those students clear and efficient pathways to completion of undergraduate certificate and degree programs.
The bill sets out the goals of the program and requires each institution of higher education to develop a recommended course sequence for each undergraduate certificate or degree program offered by the institution. The bill requires each recommended course sequence to be designed to enable a student to obtain a certificate or degree, as applicable, within four semesters or other academic terms for an associate degree or certificate program or within eight semesters or other academic terms for a baccalaureate degree program, to include a specific sequence in which courses should be completed to ensure completion of the applicable program within the specified time frame.
