PathwayU, SCC's online career exploration application, connects students with their greatest sense of purpose as they make choices for education, career, and employment. It's a great way for future and current students to begin exploring careers!
PathwayU is not a skills, abilities or simple interest inventory. It is a platform with a predictive algorithm guiding students through career exploration and employment pathway options where they'll potentially find the greatest sense of purpose and meaning in their lives. This helps to improve student success and enables students to better map their educational journey.
