BYUI and ASU reveal student transfer agreement
A new agreement will make it easier to transfer academic credit from Brigham Young University-Idaho to Arizona State University. The new partnership through BYU-Pathway Worldwide will allow students who began their education through one of BYU-Idaho’s programs to have access to a wider array of classes, majors, and degrees offered by ASU.
The program offers two basic options. According to ASU, they are:
— The Guaranteed Program for Admission (GPA) will help students plan a smooth transfer to ASU and stay focused on earning a bachelor’s degree. This program is designed for students who achieve between 24 and 60 transferable lower-division credits with a minimum of a 2.5 grade point average for most majors. It is a cost-effective and time-efficient way of ensuring courses transfer and apply to an ASU degree. — The Associate of Applied Science to Bachelor of Applied Science (AAS to BAS) program is for students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science from BYU-Idaho and want to complete a Bachelor of Applied Science at ASU. BYU-Idaho students who complete their AAS will receive 60 credits in transfer towards a complementary BAS degree at ASU, thus requiring a maximum of 60 additional credits to complete their BAS at ASU. Students signing up for either the GPA or AAS to BAS programs will receive access to a transfer specialist and pre-enrollment services at ASU. “We are pleased to be partnering with ASU in ways that will increase access and opportunity for our BYU-Pathway students,” said BYU-Pathway President Clark Gilbert. “ASU has been a great friend to our program and we look forward to offering local options for students in Arizona who want to take advantage of these opportunities.” For more information, check out the ASU website.
