The Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) and Arizona State University have formed a new alliance that provides students at any of the district’s nine colleges with a seamless transfer experience using the unique MyPath2ASU program for student success in achieving a four-year degree from ASU.

MyPath2ASU is a set of customized online tools available to transfer students from accredited, U.S. regional institutions such as LACCD’s nine colleges. These tools not only ensure students a smooth transfer experience to ASU but can also shorten the time to completion for their four-year degree and help minimize credit loss.

“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,” LACCD Chancellor Francisco C. Rodriguez said. “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.”

Through this partnership, LACCD students using MyPath2ASU will find their transfer experience simplified. They will have access to personalized benefits to help them navigate the transfer experience, including: 

  • End-to-end learner navigation through more than 400 course-by-course guided pathways into immersion, local and online ASU degree programs.
  • Ensure course applicability by assisting students with taking courses that apply to their associate and ASU bachelor’s degree.
  • Guaranteed general admission to ASU and admission into MyPath2ASU major choice if all requirements are satisfied; some majors have additional or higher admission requirements.
  • Self-service, degree-progress tracking through My Transfer Guide to minimize loss of credit.
  • Connected experience through personalized ASU communications to prepare academically and build a connection to ASU.

“ASU is committed to student success,” said ASU Vice Provost for Academic Alliances Cheryl Hyman. “We understand transfer students all have unique learning journeys. 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.”

LACCD students will also have the opportunity to attend ASU in downtown Los Angeles through ASU Local, its new hybrid university experience. ASU Local empowers students to thrive in college and life while rooted in their communities. ASU Local students have access to 130-plus online bachelor’s degrees and receive personalized college and career success coaching through in-person programming at the ASU California Center in Los Angeles.
