ASU, Fullerton College partnership makes higher education possible for dedicated mother
As a young mother, Bri Sullivan focused on raising her son immediately after high school, rather than pursuing higher education. Now, years later and with a strong support system in place, Bri is taking charge of her life’s narrative and pursuing her bachelor's degree online with ASU.
While her family served as the inspiration to go back to school, ASU's recently announced partnership with Fullerton College in California and the MyPath2ASU program gave Bri the opportunity to explore her options while juggling a full-time job and family responsibilities. “The whole process has been extremely easy,” Bri said. “From admittance to registering for classes each term, there haven't been any roadblocks too challenging to cause any issue.”
