NICEVILLE, FL – Northwest Florida State College is proud to announce it has partnered with the University of South Alabama’s Pathway USA program that streamlines the transfer process for students who earn their associate’s degree.

The partnership will help more NWF State College graduates to transfer to South Alabama and earn their bachelor’s degree from USA.

“Our partnership with the University of South Alabama greatly benefits students by expanding postsecondary degree opportunities,” said Dr. Devin Stephenson, Northwest Florida State College president. “The Pathway USA Agreement not only creates a seamless transfer opportunity, it includes wrap-around support services such as advising to assist with a successful transition. We are looking forward to growing enrollment through the Pathway USA program while strengthening the relationship between Northwest Florida State College and the University of South Alabama.”

NWF students may choose to have a copy of their USA application and supporting documents forwarded to NWF for admission consideration. Students already attending NWF may also apply for Pathway USA. A unique application will be created and available for NWF students to complete and submit.

“The University of South Alabama has a long history of attracting and educating students from Okaloosa County and northwest Florida,” said Dr. Tony Waldrop, University of South Alabama president. “We’re very excited and look forward to seeing more students from NWF join us here at USA.”

NWF 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
