Pathways Development

The pathways services at Mohawk help students to continue moving forward with their studies.

Our policies and processes aim to make the transition from credential to credential as easy as possible.  

Student success is Mohawk’s mission and passion. To improve student outcomes and support the college’s recruiting and growth strategies, we are committed to providing more pathways to a broader range of credentials.

What are Pathways?

Pathways are the various routes that students travel to move from program to program, credential to credential, or institution to institution. There are many pathways into, within, and beyond Mohawk. Ideally, students should not be required to repeat learning from previous postsecondary studies as they move through their educational pathway.
