National Student Clearinghouse Reverse Transfer Service

Reverse transfer
Credit Where It’s Due

Through reverse transfer, students who transfer from a two-year to a four-year college combine credits to collect an associate degree while working toward a bachelor’s degree. With the student’s permission, the college reviews transcripts from both institutions to assemble credits for the associate degree.


Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment programs allow high school students to earn college credit for courses they take at postsecondary institutions. Research shows that dual-enrollment students are more likely to enroll in a four-year college, make better grades and stay in college.
