Arizona State University provides an opportunity for lifelong learning with a low-cost alternative for students to earn college credit.

Arizona State University is offering digital certificate programs and exploratory options under the U.S. Early College Experience, where the courses have online projects and labs and do not require purchase of textbooks. High school students pay for their course only if they pass and would like to receive academic credit. The courses in these programs come with immediate Arizona State University credit that can be transferred to any U.S. university to jumpstart their progress in a college degree. Students have access to Arizona State University faculty in these courses and get prepared for the rigor of a college level course in a low risk model.

Students have an option to transcript for credit only if they receive a passing grade thereby avoiding financial risk. Incomplete or failing grades are not transcripted; thereby flipping the academic risk model. The ASU transcript that is received is exactly the same as received for the course as taught onground. 

In addition, the U.S. Early College Experience at Arizona State University provides students holistic approaches to connect their studies to professional perspectives. Leveraging resources at the largest public university in America, the program allows students to develop professional networks and understand how their academic experiences can transfer to future career development.

More information on the digital certificates is available at with the course catalog for the U.S. Early College Experience available at

What Our Students Say

As an Elite Admissions student in grade 12, I am beyond pleased with my acceptances into several Ivy League universities – with scholarships! Thank you to MyPathToUni and the GEMS UniConnect Team with ScorePlus, as I could not have competed the full year of applications to the US and UK without your guidance! My school counselor is thrilled with this support, too, as your kind professionalism helped guide her through the support she needed to get accepted. Thank you, again and again, for my lifelong dream is to study at an Ivy League school!
- Janice, GEMS Senior
I won a full scholarship to Cambridge Summer Programs for Film and Acting this year, thanks to the guidance of my team and counselors who showed me this opportunity and guided me through the intense application process! My family will be able to send me to this 2019 summer program in the UK because if I didn’t earn a scholarship we couldn’t afford it! Thanks for this award and opportunity, as now I am set on a path for my Uni admissions as a senior applicant for the fall – and we have a lot of work to do but a comprehensive plan already!
- Anoushka, GEMS Modern Academy Dubai
Thanks to the Oliv Team I have earned a full-time paid internship with a UAE Engineering firm to explore my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering in Canada. I almost had to attend a Foundation Program but after my internship and tutoring support from MyPathToUni over the summer, too, I am at a undergrad uni that I love. My parents are beyond happy to have had this support – as I am now on track again after my A levels to gain real-world career experience to help me determine where I go next after my undergraduate and internship experiences. Terrifc!
- Ahmed, McGill University Freshman
