EDUKAN, a consortium of four community colleges in western Kansas, is pleased to announce their 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, ensuring a smooth transition process and student success.
MyPath2ASU™ is a set of customized tools available to transfer students from accredited, U.S. regional institutions. These tools ensure a seamless transfer experience to ASU after earning credits or an associate degree from a U.S. community college or university and shortening the time to degree completion.
“EDUKAN is excited to add ASU’s MyPath2ASU™ program as yet another option for our students to take advantage of as they progress in their education journey. It is our continued vision to provide unparalleled opportunity for students to achieve their goals by offering seamless pathways to degree completion with our esteemed partner schools,” said Esther Lahargoue, EDUKAN’s Chief Executive Officer.
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
“Our partnership with EDUKAN and member community colleges facilitate the connected MyPath2ASU™ transfer experience,” Cheryl Hyman, ASU Vice Provost for Academic Alliances, said. “The ASU transfer community is dedicated to meeting students’ college navigation needs and intentionally integrating educational support programs in collaboration with our partners for all students’ learning and development stages. Ensuring that students who wish to pursue an undergraduate degree have access to the resources and tools to enable seamless transfer journeys into Arizona State University.”
ASU and EDUKAN consortium partner institutions will work collaboratively to promote educational degree pathways containing ground and online course offerings. These pathways will ensure their courses are applicable toward their degree in their chosen major and minimize credit loss.
“Our new alliance with Arizona State University will allow our students to pursue education on their terms including saving on tuition for their Associate Degree with EDUKAN and then seamlessly transfer to one of our partner schools to complete their education,” Lahargoue said.
EDUKAN’s distance education offering includes 205 plus courses year-round with 19 certificate and AA degree programs.
