In a 20-minute PathAdvisor assignment, students learn about themselves and where they fit best in your majors.

PathAdvisor includes

How to feel and perform better in college and post-graduation

Students learn about the science of academic and career well-being. We share 3 easy steps to understanding themselves better and how to find their best academic path at your institution. If a student is preparing to graduate, we’ll help them decide on next steps that will make them feel happier and more confident about their future.

Career Decision Profile®

In 5 minutes, students take a snapshot of how they feel about their academic and career journey. They identify their unique needs, barriers, and how to make progress in making college major, post-graduation, and career decisions. Take it again later to monitor progress and changes in comfort level. Learn more about the Career Decision Profile.

Career Key Discovery®

In 10 minutes, students identify the academic and work paths where they will thrive and get better grades, persist, and finish on time. Return to PathAdvisor any time to explore as they learn more about themselves and the courses that excite them. Learn more about this career assessment. Major and programs are customized to your institution.
