Get recognized for your accomplishments! Reverse transfer allows you to complete your HCC associate degree after transferring.
You may be like many college students who have earned academic credit from HCC and transferred it to a four-year college or university before receiving an associate degree. Now you have the opportunity to put “reverse transfer” credits earned at your four-year institution toward both your associate and bachelor’s degree.
Credits you earn at a four-year college or university are credited back to HCC to fulfill your HCC degree requirements. Transferring credit from a four-year institution does not interfere with the progress you are making toward a bachelor's degree. Instead, you will have your academic credits count towards both degrees.
Why is an associate degree important?
An associate degree is a significant, marketable academic achievement that can help you gain an edge in today’s competitive workforce with a credential that is valued by employers, internship coordinators, and graduate schools. Students who finish an associate degree are more likely to earn a bachelor's degree.
What are the requirements to be awarded an associate degree?
- Meet all degree requirements
- Complete a minimum of 15 college level credits at HCC
- Have a 2.0 cumulative GPA at HCC and be in good academic and financial standing with the college
2. Contact your current and previous college(s) and request that official transcripts be sent to HCC. (Many schools have an online option for transcript requests, so check their website.) You may be able to request all of your transcripts by using the electronic transcript service powered by Parchment.
Once we receive the transcript(s) and the reverse transfer form, HCC’s graduation advisor will contact you within four weeks with an evaluation and next steps.
