What is Missouri Reverse Transfer?

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 degree.

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