The Maricopa Community Colleges
and Arizona State University
have a strong history of working together to support transfer student success. The Alliance partnership is designed to promote positive and seamless experiences for Maricopa students who transfer to ASU.
Maricopa and ASU are creating a student-centered "culture of transfer". This includes using research-based strategies to increase the number of students who complete an associate's degrees and a bachelor's degree.
A key component of the enhanced Alliance is the provision of meaningful incentives for students who complete a transfer certificate and associate's degree through an articulated degree-to-degree transfer program called a MAPP (Maricopa-ASU Pathways Program).
