Gateway to Persistence and Success

What is GPS?

  • SMC's GPS (Gateway to Persistence and Success) is an online platform to support student success and retention.
  • Faculty can proactively reach out to students to get them involved and supported in their academic success.
  • Students can access Support Services, Counseling, Tutoring, and other services more quickly than the existing channels of support on campus.

This 60 second video explains how GPS is here to support students in their academic success.
