This session will provide an overview of the NACME Guide to Engineering Colleges and the Guaranteed 4.0 Learning System, which is an innovative system guaranteed to deliver a 4.0 GPA. Participants will discover how to best
use this tool with parents and students who are applying to an engineering undergraduate program. Participants will also hear from an administrator from a NACME Partner University who will evaluate the skills needed for success in an undergraduate engineering program.
Presenters:
Saundra Johnson Austin,
NACME
Rawlins Beharry,
Grove School of Engineering
Donna O. Johnson,
Guaranteed 4.0 Learning System
