New Cuesta College online tool to help students track progress

Cuesta College has launched an online tool to help students track their progress toward a degree or certificate.

The web-based program, myCuesta Pathway, allows students to see a list of all the classes they have taken at Cuesta College, how those courses affect their course of study, classes still needed in order to graduate and options for those who are considering changing their major, according to a news release.

Students will also be able to identify courses that do not count toward a major, estimate how many semesters it will take to graduate, and view their grades and grade point average.

The tool is not intended to replace counselor appointments but to be used in addition as a resource for students to map out their progress and navigate their academic goals, Vice President of Student Services Sandee McLaughlin said.

Two tutorial workshops will be held on the new program: Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to noon on the North County campus in room N5004, and Nov. 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. on the San Luis Obispo campus in room 3412.

Students can register for the workshops and find additional information at http://bit.ly/mycuestapathway.
