Long Beach City College and Arizona State University Partner to Offer College Students Transfer Pathways with MyPath2ASU™ Collaboration

Press Release

Long Beach City College 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, 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.

“Long Beach City College is excited to announce our new partnership with Arizona State University to establish a new transfer pathway for our students,” said Long Beach Community College District (LBCCD) Board of Trustees President Uduak-Joe Ntuk. “This new partnership will create another affordable transfer option for students to attend ASU either online, at the new Downtown ASU Campus or in person in Tempe, Arizona.”

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

LBCC students will also have the opportunity to attend ASU in downtown Los Angeles through ASU Local, its new hybrid university experience. ASU Local empowers students to thrive in college and in life while rooted in their communities. ASU Local students have access to 130+ online bachelor’s degrees while they receive personalized college and career success coaching and programming available in person at the downtown Los Angeles campus.

“MyPath2ASU is a very exciting opportunity for our Viking students,” said LBCCD Superintendent-President Dr. Mike Muñoz. “This alliance opens doors for our students to continue their higher education at a university that has created a set of customized tools available specifically for community college transfer students from accredited institutions such as LBCC. This also broadens our students’ opportunities to transfer to an excellent university such as ASU which is known for their innovation, work with NASA and highly-respected faculty.”

ASU and Long Beach City College 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.
