What is Pathway USA?

Pathway USA is a collaborative program between the University of South Alabama and select local two year colleges listed below.  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 partnered institutions.

Pathway USA students will work with a University of South Alabama transfer advisor who, along with their 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.
