Reverse Transfer

  • Reverse Transfer

    You may have already completed your associate degree and not even know it. If you transferred to a four-year college before graduating from ECC, you can still earn your associate degree through reverse transfer. Reverse transfer is a process where academic credits for coursework completed at a four-year university are transferred back to your community college to satisfy associate degree requirements.

    What are the benefits of earning your associate degree?

    • The associate degree is a marketable credential for your resume and an important milestone in your education.
    • There are no costs or risks to you. Even though you are applying the credits you have earned from your four-year school toward an associate degree at your community college, you can continue to complete your bachelor’s degree too!
    • The associate degree is the nation’s fastest growing work credential; employers recognize its value when recruiting and hiring.
    • Students who earn an associate degree are more likely to complete their bachelors degree.

    What criteria is required to earn my associate degree?

    • Have completed 30+ credit hours at Erie Community College
    • Have a total of 60 or more college credit hours from all colleges
    • Have a minimum GPA of 2.0 at ECC and the four-year school you attended

    What is the cost?

    • There is no cost to you for the awarding of your associate degree through the reverse transfer process.

    What steps do I take to begin the process?
