Reverse Transfer

What is Missouri Reverse Transfer?

Missouri Reverse Transfer allows college students who have completed credits toward an associate degree to receive that degree even if they have transferred to a four-year  university. Students who are not currently attending college also may be eligible to receive an associate degree through the program. All public and many independent colleges and universities in the state are participating in the Missouri Reverse Transfer Program.

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

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