A Change in the Advising Conversation

When ACC rolled out the Civitas Learning Degree Map application, they began with adoption of the app being optional. They hosted training sessions and invited potential users to view a demo and provide input. By the end of the first 60 days, ACC achieved 90 percent adoption with more than 45,000 degree plans submitted.

Increasing the Likelihood of Completion

Learn about the findings of a study of students whose persistence increased by 2.42 percentage points using Degree Map. The study also revealed that the more students used Degree Map, the higher their persistence, with increases up to 7.30 percentage points in in cases where the app was used five or more times.

Richard Rhodes “Our Degree Map project shows that when students have more clarity and control of their degree path, they’re significantly more likely to make progress on their learning path, and, best of all, cross the finish line and complete a certificate or degree. These are the kinds of outcomes all of our student success innovations are shooting for!” – Richard Rhodes, President and CEO, Austin Community College
