Reverse transfer is 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 a degree.

For more detailed information on Missouri Reverse Transfer take a look at the Missouri Department of Higher Education website.

What are the BENEFITS?

  • Earn your associate degree while pursuing your bachelor’s degree
  • Possible career advancement by earning an associate degree
