Houston Guided Pathways to Success

Seamless transfers, on-time graduation, less debt.
These are the goals of the Houston Guided Pathways to Success (or Houston GPS).


The University of Houston is a proud Houston GPS partner and committed to supporting students as they transition from community college classrooms to a university campus … and ultimately, graduate with bachelor’s degree in hand.

Our institution works closely with the region’s top institutions of higher education to ensure students can successfully transfer and remain on a trajectory toward graduation.

Through Houston GPS, transfer students are supported by:

- Proactive advising to help students navigate pathways between two and four-year institutions.

- Degree maps that outline transferrable classes for specific degree plans and guide students from their first day at a community college until they complete their bachelor's degrees.

- Structured schedules offering students consistent schedules relative to their respective degrees and to better serve working students.

- Technology that tracks student progress in real time to provide a coordinated network of support.

Colleges and universities participating in Houston GPS include Alvin Community College, College of the Mainland, Galveston College, Houston Community College, Lone Star College, San Jacinto College, Wharton County College, Prairie View A&M University, University of Houston, University of Houston-Clear Lake, University of Houston-Downtown, University of Houston-Victoria, Texas Southern University and Texas Woman’s University.
