Arizona State University is committed to establishing and growing partnerships with community colleges and other institutions and organizations that help support the academic success and ultimate college degree completion for today’s students.

A unit of the Office of the University Provost, Academic Partnerships serves as a resource for community college employees, as well as ASU faculty and staff, regarding student preparation for university success, partnership programs, community college relations, and issues resolution.

We strive to create a student-centered “culture of transfer”, which is accomplished through innovative, research-based strategies designed to significantly increase the number of students who complete an associate’s degree and a bachelor’s degree. Our Arizona and out-of-state partnership programs can be accessed on the ASU Transfer Page.

In addition, Academic Partnerships has responsibility for relationships with a variety of other institutions and organizations, as determined by the University Provost.

Please contact us if we can be of assistance.
