Reverse Transfer

Reverse transfer is the awarding of degrees to former students who complete the rest of the courses for their associate degrees at 4-year institutions. Additionally, sometimes unexpected events take you away from college prior to completion. In that case, it is good to have an associate degree for future employment opportunities. 

Many students choose to transfer to a 4-year university before they fully complete their associate degrees. However, many of these students are only missing a course or two, and they usually take these courses in their sophomore or junior years. 


  • You may have already earned a degree. The associate degree can help you be more competitive for employment and earn more while working towards the bachelor’s degree.
  • Life Happens. Obtaining a college degree is important in today’s competitive job market, but life does not always go as planned. The Reverse Transfer Program helps ensure you receive the degree you have earned.
  • Increase your earning potential. Earning an associate degree can contribute to your earning power and is a marketable credential for your resume, immediately.
