Are you looking for a place to start within ClassicalU’s course offerings?

This course pathway planner suggests course sequences in line with your areas of strength and weakness on the ClassicalU Course Selection Assessment. We recommend that you take your lowest category scores on your assessment and start there in selecting your first pathway. With higher scores, you may consider starting further along within each pathway. [Please note that this tool is new and still in its beta phase. We will soon have a fully developed rubric with specific pathway recommendations based on your own category score ranges. We would be grateful to receive your feedback as we continue to develop this tool.]
