Reverse transfer refers to a situation in which students have transferred to ASU from an Arizona community college without earning an associate degree. Credits earned while the student is at ASU are transferred back to the two-year institution for evaluation and, if applicable, will be used for an associate degree conferral.
By taking courses at ASU you may have already earned enough credits, coupled with your two-year institution credits, to get an associate degree and you should get credit for it. While you may have the best intentions to complete a bachelor’s degree, having another credential is a good “insurance policy”.
If you are in a MAPP/TAG program, you don't have to do anything. You have already given consent. If you are not part of one of these programs, but have attended an Arizona community college, make sure that you give ASU consent to share your transcript with partnering Arizona community colleges that you attended. There is no cost to you – we will send your ASU transcript back to your community college and they will check to see if you have met the requirements for their associate’s degree.
You can change your consent to allow ASU to share by contacting Academic Partnerships.
