What is the purpose of reverse transfer?
One mission of the Colorado Department of Higher Education is increasing the number of postsecondary credentials earned by students to meet anticipated workforce needs. Two years ago, Metropolitan State University of Denver began its reverse transfer pilot and has awarded 40 degrees as of September 2013.
In 2012, state lawmakers approved Senate Bill 12-45, creating a statewide reverse transfer program. The Colorado reverse transfer project, dubbed Degree Within Reach, will be fully implemented over the next two years.
Implementing Reverse Transfer
Implementing reverse transfer at the community college level will primarily be handled by the Colorado Community College System and the Colorado Department of Higher Education. However, trainings and information sessions will be available to those advising transfer and reverse transfer students.
