The Reverse Transfer Program is a collaborative effort between North Carolina Community Colleges and the UNC System.

The Reverse Transfer Program is designed to support students who transfer to a UNC System institution from one of the 58 North Carolina community colleges prior to completing an associate degree. Through the Reverse Transfer Program, students are given the opportunity to combine the credits earned at the university with credit already earned at the community college by transferring a student’s university credits back to the community college. In many cases, this combination of credits from both the university and community college can meet all degree requirements for an associate degree. This ensures that students receive recognition and applicable credentials for the work they have completed.
