Executive Summary: Map My Path

March 1, 2019

The MapMyPath project is designed to make undergraduate degree pathways more transparent and streamlined for students across higher education institutions. The project consists of a research component and the development of a tool to aid students and advisers in navigating higher education transfers. First, it seeks to understand student experiences transferring between education institutions in order to provide new insights into the challenges that undergraduate students confront when transferring course credits between programs and institutions. These insights informed the policy recommendations designed to improve undergraduate transfer experiences. Second, the MapMyPath project will use the insights gathered through this research to develop a sustainable, web-enabled product to serve students and educators in understanding credit transferability across institutions and postsecondary degree and certificate program requirements.
