Missouri Reverse Transfer
What is Missouri Reverse Transfer?
The process of allowing college students or former college students who have completed credits for an associateís 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 degree.
In preparation for a statewide implementation in Fall 2014, the Missouri Reverse Transfer program is in the pilot phase with the following institutional partners:
|Four year||Two year|
|Columbia College||Moberly Area Community College|
|Missouri Western State University||Metropolitan Community College|

|Missouri State University||Ozarks Technical Community College|
|Northwest Missouri State University||Metropolitan Community College|
|University of Missouri-Columbia||Moberly Area Community College|
|University of Missouri- St. Louis||St. Louis Community College|
If you are currently attending one of these four year institutions having transferred from their listed two year partner, you are eligible to participate in this pilot program currently underway. All other students will be eligible to participate starting Fall 2014.
