Login to SMC GPS

​SMC GPS (Gateway to Persistence and Success) is an online communication and retention tool that supports student success by building a community and facilitating connections between students, faculty, and campus services. Using this tool, students can stay connected with their instructors, get feedback on their progress in class, and access services to help them succeed​.

SMC GPS is now available to all faculty and students this summer and beyond.  Feedback from faculty and students piloting SMC GPS this spring has been very encouraging, and we are eager to share it with all faculty.  This enhanced early alert tool is perhaps the essential technology of the moment, when SMC must fully commit itself to practices and a culture of belonging that enhance persistence and success for our African American and Latinx students.  

SMC GPS is a tool designed for the task at hand, and it does so by promoting proactive communication and affirmation between instructors and students.  Moreover, SMC GPS sustains a transparent network of student support by connecting instructional and counseling faculty, student services, and students for the duration of the academic term.
