Did you transfer to a four-year university prior to earning your associate degree?
If so, you have the option to transfer four-year university credits back to Monroe County Community College to complete an associate degree through a concept called reverse transfer.
You may indicate interest in reverse transfer by completing a Reverse Transfer Transcript Release Form from your four-year university in order to have a transcript sent back to MCCC. MCCC will then evaluate the coursework to determine if degree requirements are met and if a degree will be awarded. Any MCCC degree or other credential will be awarded in the semester or year that all final requirements are met.
Why Reverse Transfer?
The associate degree is a marketable credential for your resume and an important milestone in your education. Employers value the associate degree as evidence of your commitment to expanding your knowledge and achieving your educational goals. The associate degree can make a difference in your long-term success:
- An associate degree can provide better job opportunities while completing your bachelor’s degree.
- The associate degree is the nation’s fastest growing work credential; employers recognize its value when recruiting and hiring.
- Students who earn an associate degree are more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree.
- There is no risk to you – even though you are applying the hours you have earned at your four-year university toward an associate degree at MCCC, your hours earned will still apply toward your bachelor’s degree.
