Highline and ASU Partner to Offer Transfer Pathways

Highline College is pleased to announce a new alliance with Arizona State University. The partnership will provide students a seamless transfer experience with ASU’s MyPath2ASU® program, which helps students successfully plan their transfer to ASU at the start of their college experience, ensuring a smooth transition process for student success.

MyPath2ASU® is a set of customized tools available to transfer students from accredited, U.S. regional institutions. These tools help students transfer to ASU after they’ve earned credits or an associate degree from a U.S. university or community college, including Highline College, therefore shortening their time to degree completion.

“Highline College is actively engaging four-year partners like Arizona State University to provide students with more seamless transfer options,” said Maribel Jimenez, Dean, Academic Transfer Pathways and Partnerships at Highline College. “ASU has created tools, including MyPath2ASU® to help Highline College students map their pathway to a degree at ASU. Students will be able to, from day one at Highline, know what classes to take and what classes will transfer to ASU to prepare for their degree. Highline College can provide the first two years of courses of the four-year degree, then students can transfer to ASU and finish the last two years of courses.”

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, including:

  • 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 campus immersion and online ASU degree programs
  • Connected experience through personalized ASU communications to prepare academically and build a connection to ASU
  • Highline College and ASU will work collaboratively to promote educational degree pathways containing in-person and online course offerings. These pathways will ensure their courses are applicable toward their degree in their chosen major and minimize credit loss.
