MEFA Pathway, our free college and career planning portal for Massachusetts students, has numerous features to help students chart a path for their future academic and career endeavors. We'd like to highlight three features below: our Course Planner, SAI Calculator, and Internships page.

Course Planner

  • Students create a course plan (grades 9-12) from the course catalog created by school counselors
  • If a school has not created a course catalog, students can still create a course plan by adding custom courses
  • Students select the subject area, course name, and level (AP, Honors, Academic, College Prep) for each course
  • The course planner indicates courses that meet Mass Core requirements
  • School counselors can view the status of each student's course planner
  • Students update the final grade and credits earned for each course

SAI Calculator

  • Students use the calculator to determine their Student Aid Index (SAI), which is intended to reflect the family's financial strength and ability to pay for college.


  • Students can filter available internships in Massachusetts based upon career category or featured internships
  • Links are provided to external resources offering more information on each particular internship opportunity
