What is Reverse Transfer?

A student who transfers to K-State from a Kansas public community college or technical college may be eligible for Reverse Transfer, a Kansas Board of Regents initiative, which allows the student to receive an associate degree from that college while enrolled at K-State.

A student who transfers coursework from a community college or technical college to a public university and who meets the eligibility criteria (initial term at K-State is Fall 2014 or later and has earned at least 45 transfer credit hours with at least 15 of those hours from a single 2-year public Kansas college) will be notified via email during their initial term at K-State and be given the opportunity to opt-in/participate in the program.  If a student opts-in, K-State will send a K-State transcript to the student's designated community college every term until such time that the student is either awarded the associate degree and it is reflected on the student's K-State record or the student is no longer enrolled at K-State.

If a student misplaces the initial email, the student can check his/her Reverse Transfer status in KSIS at: Main Menu > Self Service > Student Success > Reverse Transfer.

If a student misses the opt-in deadline or would like to opt-out, he/she should contact the Office of the Registrar (registrar@k-state.edu).

It is the responsibility of the community college(s) to communicate with the student regarding completion of requirements.  It is also the responsibility of the community college to communicate completion of the associate degree with K-State by sending an official transcript showing the degree awarded to the Office of Admissions.
