ASU Academic Alliances National Partnership Model: Universal Articulation


Universal Articulation at Arizona State University works collaboratively with partnering institutions to fully integrate ASU Academic Alliances services and student transfer success tools. We believe that embedding ASU early and often will help provide students with an end-to-end connected pathway experience that will enable academic preparedness, college completion and career readiness.

Expanding on the traditional articulation agreement, we have created integrated processes to facilitate partnership solutions to enhance student success outcomes. Through Universal Articulation, transfer courses are evaluated to minimize loss of credit and to further enable a seamless transfer journey with more than 400 transfer pathways into ASU.

Significant progress has been made in our efforts to connect with community colleges throughout the U.S. Over the next five years, Academic Alliances plans to sign and onboard all 1,151 community colleges to the Universal Articulation Agreement.

Both nationally and within Arizona, ASU has signed on 33 community colleges thus far. We are proud to celebrate our newly on boarded partners.

Academic College Highlight: The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication 

As one of the top journalism schools in the country, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication offers your students a highly professional, hands-on journalism and mass communication experience in preparation for a career in media.

It's a crucial time to be a reporter or producer who delivers the news or a strategic communications professional who analyzes their audience. So why not cover the next historical moment while training at Cronkite?

Whether in person, remote or in the field, your students will get to experience the exciting aspects of cutting-edge journalism.

The Cronkite School wants students to have a smooth transfer process on their journey to ASU. That's why students working towards earning their degree are highly encouraged to start their transfer experience by signing up for MyPath2ASU™. When applying for admission to the Cronkite School, transfer applicants need to have a 3.00 cumulative transfer GPA and at least 12 university/college credits.
