The process of allowing college students or former college students who have completed credits for an associate degree to receive that degree even if they have transferred to a different college or university, or stopped out of higher education altogether.

Missouri has moved forward with a statewide policy to help more Missourians earn degrees.

What are the BENEFITS?

  • Earn your associate degree while pursuing your bachelor’s degree
  • Possible career advancement with earned associate degrees
  • Qualify for more jobs
  • A degree can help you earn more money
  • Possibly meet general education requirements at your 4 year transfer institution

You must have earned a minimum of 15 credit hours at a single two-year institution to be eligible for a reverse transfer degree. Students are not eligible for the program if they currently possess an associate degree or higher.

Do you have questions?
Get your answers from your campus Reverse Transfer Coordinator or through FAQ.

What do you need to do to participate in Reverse Transfer?
Missouri Reverse Transfer is set up so that you as the student do not have to do a lot of work. We want this to be seamless and easy. You will need to give the four-year institution permission to share your transcripts with your two-year college so please fill out this form and turn it into the Reverse Transfer Coordinator.
