The established pathways have been in partnership with Santa Monica College counselors. They are designed to provide students a clear route to complete lower division general education requirements and any lower-division major courses in which Santa Monica College has an equivalent.

The pathways represent basic information a student would receive when meeting with a counselor to develop a Student Education Plan and are designed for academic advising purposes only. Before acting on these recommendations, students are strongly encouraged to meet with a counselor to discuss individual plans and needs.
