Arizona State University, LACCD Collaborate on Transfer Pathways Program

The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) recently announced a partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) to create MyPath2ASU, an online program that provides LACCD students with a method of transferring to the latter school to earn a four-year degree. According to a news release, MyPath2ASU provides students at any of LACCD’s nine colleges with personalized benefits and online tools to make the transition as smooth as possible.

“We look forward to working collaboratively with Arizona State University to bring this new and innovative online resource to our students who want to pursue a clear, educational transfer pathway to ASU,” said LACCD Chancellor Francisco C. Rodriguez. “The MyPath2ASU online toolkit makes it easier for our students and educational counselors to map out their transfer classes, so that they can obtain the four-year degree of their choice.”

The news release reports that MyPath2ASU offers features like learner navigation through course-by-course guided pathways; course applicability to ensure students take courses that build toward their degree; guaranteed admission to both ASU and the student’s MyPath2ASU major of choice if all requirements are met; self-service degree progress tracking; and more than 400 guided pathways into local, online or immersion ASU degree programs.

“ASU is committed to student success. We understand transfer students all have unique learning journeys,” said Cheryl Hyman, ASU Vice Provost for Academic Alliances. “Through our new partnership with the Los Angeles Community College District and our MyPath2ASU transfer tools, we encourage all transfer students to have a connected pathway experience that will enable students to shorten their time to degree completion with minimal credit loss.”
