Texas Woman’s University Joins the Houston Guided Pathways to Success Consortium

Texas Woman’s University has become the fourteenth member of the Houston Guided Pathways to Success consortium. The group of universities and community colleges has taken the guesswork out of the transfer process to help students earn their bachelor’s degrees on time and with less debt.

As a Houston GPS member, TWU will partner with community colleges in offering streamlined pathways to its bachelor’s programs and ultimately, toward graduation. Houston GPS institutions collaborate to ensure students take only the classes they need to advance in their respective degree programs, which eliminates excess credit hours and additional debt. Using academic maps, students recognize the classes that will transfer, as well as those courses required to graduate with bachelor’s degrees.

“Texas Woman’s University is an outstanding addition to Houston GPS,” said Loren Blanchard, president of the University of Houston Downtown and chair of the Houston GPS Governing Council. “Its academic reputation and commitment to its students is well known throughout the state, and we look forward to collaborating with its leadership in supporting student success.”

“Texas Woman’s has pioneered a distinctive space in the higher education landscape for more than 120 years,” said Carine Feyten, chancellor of Texas Woman’s University. “We are thrilled to be pioneering new opportunities for Houston-area students who can truly thrive at a public university with a woman-focused mission.”
