University Transfer Partnerships
Paradise Valley Community College (PVCC) has transfer partnerships with the 3 major Arizona state universities, and special science transfer partnerships with other universities.
Arizona State University (ASU) has a partnership with PVCC called MAPP. This program is designed for students who want to start at the community college and plan to complete a bachelor’s degree at ASU. You will follow a prescribed sequence of course work at a Maricopa Community College that meets the lower-division course requirements for an ASU major. When you complete your MAPP, you will have met the requirements for your associate degree and be on track toward earning your selected bachelor’s degree. See all the transfer opportunities at ASU.
