Reverse Transfer Program

Earn your associate degree while you work on pursuing your bachelor’s degree!

About the program

The Tennessee Reverse Transfer program allows transfer students to combine credits from two participating institutions to earn an associate degree. Students who transfer to a Tennessee four-year institution—after completing more than 25 percent of the required college level credits for an associate degree at a Tennessee community college—may combine credits and put them towards earning an associate degree.

Tennessee Reverse Transfer Eligibility

The following requirements must be met in order to participate in the Tennessee Reverse Transfer Program:

  • Be a current enrollee who transferred from a Tennessee community college
  • Completed at least 15 hours at a Tennessee community college 
  • Have a minimum of 60 combined college credits

Students who meet the requirements for an associate degree, or who are close to meeting the requirements, will be contacted and provided an opportunity to have completed credit evaluated for an associate degree. Students must agree to share their two- and four-year transcript information and transcripts between those institutions to determine if they are eligible for an associate degree at no cost to the student.
