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 constituent institutions. Students who transfer to a North Carolina university from a participating 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. By July 2015, all North Carolina community colleges and UNC institutions will be participating in North Carolina's Reverse Transfer program.
