Pathway USA Expands to Pensacola State College
Posted on October 19, 2018
The University of South Alabama today announced that Pensacola State College has become part of “Pathway USA,” a collaborative program between the University of South Alabama and select community and state colleges that creates a seamless transition to USA for transfer students who earn their associate’s degree.
Pensacola State College is the fourth institution to join the program. The academic partnership will enable more PSC graduates to transfer to South and earn their bachelor’s degrees from USA.
“The University of South Alabama has historically enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with Pensacola State College, and Pathway USA is a natural outgrowth of our relationship,” said Dr. Tony Waldrop, University of South Alabama president. “Both institutions are strongly committed to helping students achieve their degrees in a timely manner and with a minimum of expense. Today’s agreement is an important step in enhancing those goals.”
South currently enjoys similar partnerships with Coastal Alabama Community College, Bishop State Community College and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.
“Pathway USA’s agreement with Pensacola State College takes effect immediately and is geared toward students who are not admitted at USA as well as students who may simply prefer to begin their college education at PSC,” said Dr. Edward Meadows, Pensacola State College president.
PSC students may choose to have a copy of their USA application and supporting documents forwarded to PSC for admission consideration. Students already attending PSC may also apply for Pathway USA. A unique application will be created and available for PSC students to complete and submit.
PSC students who enter the Pathway USA program will have unique benefits, such as:
- Guaranteed admission to USA upon successful completion (cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or higher) of the associate’s degree
- A USA academic advisor assigned to them who will provide individual guidance on course selection and map out degree plans
- Special discounts through USA’s Jaguar Productions
- Complimentary admission to South Alabama home athletic events
Persons wanting additional information on Pathway USA at the University of South Alabama are urged to contact USA’s Admissions Office at 251-460-7834 or Recruitment@southalabama.edu or Sheila Nichols, PSC executive director of marketing and communications, at 850-484-1428 or email@example.com.
