The Native Pathways to College Program works to increase the number of American Indian and Alaska Native students enrolled in college, support successful transfer of two-year tribal college and university (TCU) students to four-year institutions, and increase the admissions testing and college readiness of high school students through academic preparedness strategies.

The Native Pathways program also assists Native students to apply to institutions with competitive admissions requirements.

The Native Pathways to College Program is divided into four sections:

High School Admissions Pathway : This program helps high school students at any stage realize the importance and benefits of attending college. In order to make college more accessible and easier to navigate, College Admissions Coaches provide guidance and resources through on-site visits to high schools, social media interaction, one-on-one coaching, and workshops.

College Bridge Pathway : Works with 300 American Indian and Alaska Native high school students to prepare them for college academmically and socially. Program is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors preparing for college.

Tribal College Transfer Pathway : Creates transfer pathways for tribal college students to four-year institutions. Services help students identify transfer opportunities to ensure a smooth transfer and to access adequate tools and resources upon transfer.

First-Year Experience Pathway : Helps Native students transition college for first-year success, providing individualized coaching and support. Topics include building successful academic habits, increasing academic success in the short and long term, setting academic and career goals, and developing a community.
