PATHWAYS TO SUCCESS
Pathways programs provide certainty for students who transfer to Arizona’s public universities from community colleges through seamless transfer of course credits. Pathways programs in Arizona enhance student success through approximately 1,200 of these programs.
During the 2016-17 academic year, 10,853 students transferred from Arizona community colleges to Arizona’s public universities – a 10.9 percent increase over the past five years. Approximately 50 percent of new transfer students graduate with a bachelor’s degree within three years of transferring while an additional 20 percent graduate in the next three years.
As part of its strategic plan, the Arizona Board of Regents measures growth in undergraduate degrees that are awarded in four years to Arizona community college transfer students.
