Butte College is launching a mobile app students can download for free called “GradGuru” which is designed to help students with important deadlines and tips to help students stay on track, be successful in college, and reach their academic goals. The award-winning app focuses on increasing the success of community college students. GradGuru helps students keep track of important academic and financial aid deadlines, key tasks, and upcoming campus events. The app even rewards students for being successful and meeting milestones.
“With 13,000 students a semester, our students rely on their phones throughout the day to check emails, connect with friends and family, catch up on Facebook or listen to music,” said Les Jauron, Butte College Vice President for Planning, Research and Organizational Development. “This free app is a resource that benefits our students with important reminders and all they need to do is download it through the App Store or Google Play. And, some students even get rewarded with gift cards for completing key achievements.”
