What is Missouri Reverse Transfer?
Missouri Reverse Transfer allows individuals who have completed credits for an associate degree to receive that degree even if they have transferred to a four-year college or university. Individuals who are not currently attending college may be eligible to complete 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.


How does the program work?

Students who have completed at least 15 transferrable credits at a two-year college and transferred to a four-year college or university in Missouri can transfer credit back to the two-year college to earn an associate degree. More information can be found in the Missouri Reverse Transfer policy.


What are the benefits?

  • An associate degree can open the door to more job opportunities and higher pay.
  • Students can earn an associate degree while pursuing their bachelor’s degree.
  • An associate degree can help students meet the general education requirements at a four- year college or university.


Who is eligible?

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


What steps do students need to take to earn a reverse transfer degree?
Applying for a reverse transfer degree is a simple and seamless process. Individuals need to give the four-year institution permission to share their transcripts with the two-year college they attended.



For more information about the Missouri Reverse Transfer Program, students should contact the reverse transfer coordinator at their college or university.
