Students at Virginia’s Community Colleges (VCCS) have a new tool to help identify career goals and navigate an academic path that leads to on-time degree completion. As part of a strategic goal to triple the number of credentials earned by the year 2021, the system is rolling out EAB Navigate to augment onboarding and advising support for its 252,000 students.
EAB Navigate “provides a structured onboarding experience and student-centered tools to help students develop clear academic plans, understand their time to degree completion and communicate with advisers,” according to a press release.
