Reverse Transfer Agreements

Eastern Michigan University is partnering with community colleges in Michigan to make associate degree completion as easy as possible. Reverse Transfer Agreements allow transfer students to use credits they've taken at EMU to complete the requirements for an associate's degree from their community college.

Why Get an Associate's Degree?

Why should you be interested in earning an associate's degree when you're already working on a bachelor's degree?

  • It shows future employers your ability to complete things you've started
  • You will receive recognition and credentialing for all the time and effort you spent at your community college
  • It's a great resume builder! You can list multiple degrees on your resume

How the Agreement Works

In order to take advantage of one of our reverse transfer agreements, students must have transferred fifteen or more credit hours from one of our partner schools without completing an associate's degree. Eligible students will have their EMU transcripts sent to the partner school free of charge. The partner school will then process an audit for the applicable associate's degree and notify the student of his or her graduation status within weeks.
