Pathways for allied health success
The path to higher education can sometimes be a winding one, riddled with roadblocks and barriers. However, the Department of Rehabilitation and Health Services offers the Pathways for Allied Health Success program (PAHS) in an effort to clear the trails for African American and Latino(a) students. Students enrolled in this academic program are given the opportunity to earn their master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling at an accelerated rate.
What Our Students Say
Kristen: "The PAHS program has already helped me so much. I don’t have to worry about paying for my books which is great. My case manager was able to answer my questions during our first meeting regarding scholarships and different employment opportunities within the field. I feel like I’ll be prepared once I graduate. I am excited and think this program is great."
Gracie: "As a participating student of the UNT Pathways program, I have been extremely excited about being a part of this fantastic program. Through the Pathways Program, I am able to work toward my Bachelor/Masters Degrees simultaneously while receiving some of the best ingredients for success, such as: professional mentoring, professional conference attendance, assistance with books, as well as, barrier removals. I am eternally grateful and totally blessed for the staff and professors who set success of the students as a high priority! I now know that I am my only barrier to not achieving success in reaching my goal of becoming a Professional in the field of Rehabilitation Counseling/Faith Based Counseling. Thanks be to God and in the UNT Pathways Program who are a part of my success."

It gives me the satisfaction of knowing I have a group of professionals I can trust and turn to for assistance and orientation."
