To help graduate more students, many colleges have implemented “auto-grad” solutions, often hacking their degree audit systems to do so.  Unfortunately, these systems only address part of the problem.   For example, they don’t show important details such as which students are off-path, which courses are most needed next semester, etc.  Colleges have to have to look up each student one-by-one.

In contrast, ZogoTech’s Pathways module allows anyone to see every requirement each student needs to complete, for every program — in under a second.   Below is comparison of ZogoTech’s approach versus typical auto-grad solutions.
