Missouri Reverse Transfer allows college students who have completed credits for an associate degree to receive that degree even if they have transferred to a four-year college or university. Students who are not currently attending college also may be eligible to complete an associate degree through the program.

This program was designed to help more Missourians earn degrees. How does it 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. Additional information can be found in the statewide Missouri Reverse Transfer policy.
