What is Pathway USA?
Pathway USA is a collaborative program between the University of South Alabama and select local community colleges. We support a smooth transition for students transferring to South who have earned an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree from one of our participating schools.
Pathway USA students will work with a University of South Alabama Transfer Advisor who, along with their community college counselor, will help them develop a sound academic plan, find resources to support academic success and become familiar with South's campus and resources, all while still working toward their Associate Degree.
