Reverse Transfer

North Carolina's Reverse Transfer Program is a state initiative in which students are rewarded for credit they have already earned or will earn at the four year university. The program is designed to award an associate degree to students who previously attended a North Carolina Community College and fulfilled the associate degree requirements while working towards a bachelor’s degree at a North Carolina university.

If you are awarded the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree through the Reverse Transfer program, ECSU will honor the degree to meet our General Education requirements. Your advisor can only advise you on ECSU’s degree requirements. It is your responsibility to understand your community college requirements for completing an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree.

ECSU will work closely with our North Carolina Community College partners to ensure a seamless transfer process. The following links contain information to aid and inform students and North Carolina Community College members in the transfer process.
