August 16, 2016 · 1 min read · By ASU Online

The first two years of any degree program introduce the knowledge that can either cement your career path or divert your interest to other fields of study. For associate degree holders and those who shift gears mid-degree, transfer opportunities are of prime importance.

Online degrees have proven popular with Arizona State University transfer students, especially those transferring from online community college programs. Approximately 80 percent of ASU’s online bachelor’s degree students are transfer students who earned credits elsewhere prior to enrolling. That’s why ASU seeks to ease the process for transfer students motivated to finish their undergraduate degree.

If you’re ready to transfer online associate credits to pursue an ASU Online bachelor’s degree, here’s a brief summary of the advice ASU shares:

  1. Explore articulation agreements between your previous school and its partner universities first.
  2. Find the right fit to transfer credits by narrowing down the schools you are considering sooner.
  3. Contact your advisors at the next institution as soon as you decide on a school.
  4. Anticipate setbacks so you can correct any issues that arise with less stress.
