Arizona State University – MAPP
The Maricopa-Arizona State University Pathways Program (MAPP) is designed for Maricopa Community Colleges students with a plan to transfer to Arizona State University (ASU) to complete a bachelor’s degree. The program uses a prescribed sequence of coursework for students to simultaneously meet the requirements of an associate degree with Maricopa Community Colleges and the lower-division course requirements for an ASU major.
Students are ensured a smooth university admission to ASU degree programs when MAPP requirements are met. Beyond a clear and efficient transfer pathway, the MAPP gives you access to ASU transfer advising at your Maricopa Community College and ASU's Pathway Tracker tool to check your progress.
Northern Arizona University
Students working toward an associate degree with Maricopa Community Colleges can pursue a bachelor’s degree through the Northern Arizona University (NAU) 2NAU program. Transfer students may earn an NAU bachelor's degree at the Flagstaff campus, online, or at many locations throughout Arizona. Evening and online courses, as well as NAU's Personalized Learning programs provide convenient pathways for Maricopa transfer students to earn a bachelor's degree.
2NAU is a joint admission program providing benefits to transfer students like merit scholarships, access to online resources, transfer advisement, and a waived application fee.

AAS to BAS Degree Transfer Pathways at ASU, NAU, and UA

BAS degrees build on the specialized, career-focused learning done in AAS programs. AAS graduates may transfer up to 75 credits toward a BAS degree at ASU, NAU, or UA, leaving as few as 45 credits to complete at the university.
