- Provide early interventions for high school students who test less than college ready in key areas such as writing and mathematics.
- Establish program articulation agreements with four-year institutions that map the entire degree program sequence that illustrates a coherent pathway to a bachelor’s degree and guarantees seamless transfer if students adhere to the pathway.
