Co-Advising Framework

The Co-Advising Framework is a resource for facilitating collaboration between secondary and postsecondary educators, advisors, and staff as they create computer science and cybersecurity (CS/Cy) pathways, with the goal of supporting seamless transitions from high school to college to career. The framework outlines activities that will increase enrollment of high-need students in these pathways and support them in achieving their college and career goals.

The framework groups activity suggestions for collaboration under five categories. When secondary and postsecondary partners collaborate and co-advise students, the boundaries between high school and college become less distant (through opportunities like dual enrollment) and high-need students are able to more easily access, enroll in, and complete pathways and earn postsecondary credentials.
