McHenry County College partners with Arizona State University to improve transfer experience

McHenry County College rolled out a new seamless transfer program with Arizona State University, allowing students at the start of their college experience, to plan their transfer and take the steps they need to.

The MyPath2ASU program is a set of customized tools that helps students transfer to Arizona State University from accredited, U.S. regional institutions, according to a news release from MCC. The tools “ensure a seamless transfer experience” to ASU after earning credits or an associate degree from a U.S. community college or university and shorten the time to degree completion.

“We’re excited for this enhanced partnership with ASU,” MCC’s coordinator for articulation and transfer, Julie Sherwood, said in a statement. “It allows our students to save time and money, minimize any loss of credit and have a solid plan in place for their next step.”

Students in the program will receive help navigating course-by-course guided pathways, assistance with planning courses that apply to both their associate and bachelor’s degree, guaranteed general admission to ASU, and admission into their MyPath2ASU major choice as long as they meet all the requirements.

They can also track their degree progress throughout their studies and will receive personalized communication from ASU that help them both prepare academically and build a connection to the four-year institution, according to the release.
