Waubonsee offers two-tier business degree at Aurora Downtown Campus

Waubonsee Community College is offering an academic program that allows students to earn an associate degree with an emphasis in business at its Aurora Downtown Campus.

The Guaranteed Pathway to Success (GPS) Program provides students with the opportunity to earn their transfer degree by taking classes in a hybrid format with the face-to-face portion of classes meeting exclusively at the Aurora Downtown Campus and additional coursework completed online. The classes are eight weeks long. The face-to-face classes meet two evenings a week and the coursework includes all of the general education requirements for an Associate of Arts degree, as well as the business courses required to enter many four-year institutions’ business programs.

Students who participate in this program are guaranteed seats in the classes in order to graduate in two years. In addition to this guarantee, additional academic support is provided and the program manager will assist students with enrollment and the transfer process, as well as any other issues that may occur during the length of the program.

Waubonsee will host a free information session about the program on Monday, July 16, at 6:30 p.m. at the Aurora Downtown Campus. In addition to getting information about the GPS Program, attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 gift card to the Waubonsee bookstore.

Visit waubonsee.edu/gps to learn more about the Guaranteed Pathway to Success Program and to register for the information session, or call Sean Warren-Crouch at 630-466-5757.
