Des Plaines, Ill. (Dec. 12, 2023) – Oakton College is pleased to announce a new alliance with Arizona State University to provide students with a seamless transfer experience through the MyPath2ASU® program. MyPath2ASU allows Oakton 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.

“Many of our students plan to transfer to a four-year college or university after their time at Oakton,” says Anne Brennan, Oakton’s assistant vice president of Academic Affairs and College Transitions. “This new partnership provides students with clear steps from the moment they start their journey at Oakton to ensure a successful transition to Arizona State University.”

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.

“Recognizing the diversity and uniqueness of transfer students’ learning journeys, we are dedicated to their success,” emphasized Cheryl Hyman, ASU vice provost for Academic Alliances. “Through our new partnership and the MyPath2ASU transfer tools, we encourage every transfer student to embark on the connected pathway experience that will empower students to expedite their time to degree completion while minimizing credit loss.”

Through this partnership, Oakton 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 course-by-course guided pathways
  • ensure course applicability by assisting students with taking courses that apply to their 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 maximize transferable credits
  • connected experience through personalized ASU communications to prepare academically and build a connection to ASU
ASU and Oakton College 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.

Oakton has also established lasting and meaningful partnerships with over 30 colleges and universities to further ease the transition from Oakton. To learn more about ASU and other transfers from Oakton, please visit Oakton’s website.
