ASU’s MyPath2ASU enhances the transfer experience for students

Aerospace engineering major Valentin Madrigal

Aerospace engineering major Valentin Madrigal.

Valentin Madrigal is an Arizona State University transfer student from Central Arizona College. Inspired to pursue higher education to support his family, in addition to his fascination with space travel, he chose ASU for its renowned aerospace engineering program and anticipates that he will graduate in spring 2024.

As a first-generation college student, Madrigal chose to begin at a community college, as he struggled through high school and had very little knowledge of the American educational system. Coming from an underdeveloped part of Mexico that lacked a public education system, his parents had difficulties guiding him on his educational journey. He admits to having been an unmotivated student in high school because of impoverishment and family circumstances.

Convinced that he would never be able to go to college with his low GPA and ACT score, Madrigal joined the U.S. Army instead. With hard work and dedication, Madrigal is now a Phi Theta Kappa honor student who was able to fund his education using the GI Bill.

He took advantage of MyPath2ASU, a set of customized tools to help create a seamless transfer experience to ASU after a student earns credits or an associate degree from a U.S. community college or university. It allows students to choose from more than 400 pathways into an on-ground or online ASU degree program and have access to personalized benefits that help them navigate the transfer experience. By taking classes that transfer to ASU, students shorten their time to degree completion.

Copper mine tailings — the leftover rocks, water and chemicals of the mining process — are produced at a very high rate during excavation from mining activity. The displaced material sits idly and is harmful to the environment as it releases particulate matter emissions and leaches acid, heavy metals and even toxic and radioactive material to its surroundings and groundwater.
