College navigation made easy with the help of the GPS team

is here to help you navigate college
How did we survive before the GPS? Without it, it was too easy to find yourself wandering down the wrong road. Then along came the GPS, making it much harder to get lost anymore! Well, now there’s a GPS for your college experience that provides those same benefits -- it tells you where you are and shows you how to get where you want to go.

The GPS (Guided Peirce Services) team is your college tour guide, from day one until the day you graduate. The team is made up of a group of Peirce experts whose job it is to point you in the right direction and make your college experience more manageable.

If you don’t know where to go, GPS is here to tell you. They’re ready to answer your questions or put you where you need to be to get them answered. The GPS team is essentially a one-stop-shop responsible for connecting you with the appropriate person or department who can help to answer any questions you have. Here is a sample of some of the issues they can help you with:

  • Registering for class and making schedule adjustments
  • Assembling paperwork for financial aid, tuition reimbursement, and scholarships -- and then directing you to someone within the Office of Financial Aid who can take it from there
  • Navigating the student portal and e-course companion
  • Ordering books
  • Setting up a Peirce email address
  • Gaining a Peirce student ID
  • How to find and get started with any of the following resources, among others:
  • Answers to any of your questions about succeeding along your college journey!
