The Center for Student Success established the Graduation Pathway Success Center in the Fall 2012 semester as part of a brand new First Year Javelina Initiative.  The Graduation Pathway Success (GPS) Center, located in Jernigan Library 210, houses the GPS Mentors and Professional Academic Advisors.  The GPS Mentors are current Texas A&M University-Kingsville students who serve as mentors to the incoming freshmen at TAMUK. 

The GPS Mentoring program is designed to support incoming freshmen in making a successful and enjoyable transition from high school to college by creating educational and supportive relationships designed to direct students to be successful in their first year of college.  The GPS Mentors help ease the transition from high school to college by sharing skills and positive habits, guiding students to resources and opportunities on campus, and promoting positive decision making. 

Mentoring

GPS Mentoring is tied in with the UNIV University Success course that is taken by all first time in college freshmen.  Each freshman is required to meet with a GPS Mentor once a week for 30 minutes.  Each UNIV section is assigned a GPS Tutor who has a similar major to the students in the course.
