Missouri Reverse Transfer

Commuter Lounge


The process of allowing college students or former college students who have completed credits for an associate's 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 associate's degrees.

For more detailed information on Missouri Reverse Transfer take a look at the Department of Higher Education website.

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.


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