Pittsburg, CA -- Los Medanos College (LMC) is pleased to announce a new alliance with Arizona State University to provide students a seamless transfer experience with the MyPath2ASU program. MyPath2ASU™ allows students to take the steps needed, at the start of their college experience, to successfully plan their transfer to ASU.
“We’re thrilled to partner with ASU and to help our students work toward potential transfer to ASU,” LMC Interim President Pamela Ralston said. “It’s an exciting expansion of opportunities for our transfer students.”
MyPath2ASU™ is a set of customized tools available to transfer students from accredited, U.S. regional institutions. The program helps students transfer to ASU after earning credits or an associate degree from a U.S. community college or university and helps shortens the time to degree completion.
“As an ASU transfer student and alum, I know first-hand the quality education that Arizona State University provides,” LMC Vice President of Student Services Tanisha Maxwell said. “I am pleased that we are able to increase the transfer education options for LMC students through this alliance.”
Through this partnership, students using MyPath2ASU™ will find their transfer experience simplified. They will have access to personalized benefits to help them navigate the transfer experience, to include:
- End-to-end learner navigation through course-by-course guided pathways,
- 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,
- More than 400 course-by-course guided pathways into immersion and online ASU degree programs,
- 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 and Los Medanos College will work together to promote educational degree pathways containing in-person and online course offerings. These pathways will ensure their courses apply to a degree in their chosen major and minimize credit loss.
