1,750 former community college students opt in for chance at retroactive associate degrees.
Graduation has come unexpectedly for 341 community college transfer students, thanks to Tennessee’s new reverse transfer program and commitment to helping more students earn college degrees.
The Tennessee Reverse Transfer program, which rolled out at the University of Tennessee this month, makes it possible for students who transferred from a Tennessee community college before earning a two-year degree to retroactively receive that credential when requirements are met in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.
An estimated 1,300 students who transfer each year from Tennessee community colleges to four-year institutions before finishing their associate degrees will soon be able to get that degree credential thanks to “reverse transfer” and a partnership involving every public and a range of private higher education institutions in the state.
