Barstow Community College announced a new partnership with Arizona State University to support academic preparedness and continue to grow an ecosystem of transfer student success.
Among the benefits of BCC’s Universal Articulation agreement with ASU — MyPath2ASU — are degree options tailored to the college’s needs, within the university’s requirements.
“Through student support collaboration, academic alignment, term-to-term persistence and transfer outcome strategies, students are ensured a smooth transition to the university and the support essential for student success,” the college said in a statement.
The agreement ensures course applicability by assisting students with taking courses that apply to their associate and ASU bachelor’s degree.
General admission will be guaranteed to the university if all requirements are met. Although some majors may have other or higher admission requirements.
The guided pathway partnership is one of the other latest happenings at BCC.
Scrolling through the college’s website recently has been easier due to ot an updated interface.
The college credited “months of hard work and dedication” to the launch of the redesigned website.
“The new homepage site reflects best practices in modern web development, including accessibility, mobile-first design, improved navigation, and more engaging content, as well as a greater emphasis on the needs of prospective students,” BCC said in a statement.
According to the college, the previous version of the website was a “static website” based on HTML, compared to the now using Drupal, an open-source content management system.
The website was previously not mobile-friendly, but now the website’s pages scale to mobile phones and tablets.
The college said the website also features an updated directory with a search feature, compared to the previous PDF version.
