Did you know you can earn an Associate Degree while completing your Bachelor's Degree?

The Reverse Transfer Program is a collaborative effort between North Carolina's Community Colleges and the University of North Carolina's 16 senior institutions. Students who transfer to a UNC institution from a North Carolina community college are given the opportunity to combine the credits earned at the university with credit already earned at the community college to determine if the associate degree requirements have been met. All North Carolina community colleges and UNC institutions are participating in North Carolina's Reverse Transfer Program.

So, why should you participate in the Reverse Transfer Program if you're already pursuing a bachelor's degree?

The number one reason is that you may have already earned an associate degree! Another reason is the potential increase in future earnings.  Earning an associate degree can contribute to your earning power and is a marketable credential for your resume, immediately.
