What is Reverse Transfer?
Reverse Transfer is what happens when a student starts at a 4-year institution or a university and needs to transfer back to a 2-year or community college. It might even be that a student started at a community college, went on to the university, but then needs to go back to the community college.
What can you do if you if you find yourself needing a reverse transfer?
This can be a tricky process and you may find you need some extra assistance from the transfer experts at the institutions with which you are working.
- Be prepared to provide additional information to help the transfer experts give you appropriate credit. Be an advocate for yourself. Retain or get copies of things like syllabi, course descriptions from institutional catalogs, and other content related information to help out.
- Finally, remember you're not in it alone. If you need a contact person to work with from one of our participating institutions, be sure to check our list: Participating Institutions. Each institutional name is a link to specific information from them, including their transfer expert. You can reach out to them to get the help you need.
