Reverse transfer

What is it? Reverse transfer is the term used for students who do not complete their degree before transferring to another college or university, but complete coursework at the transfer institution and use those credits to complete their Associate degree at SRC. If you complete at least 15 credit hours at SRC, you can transfer additional coursework back to SRC to graduate.
