Reverse Transfer

Reverse transfer is an agreement between Western Michigan University and community colleges that allows students to receive an associate degree by combining credits completed at WMU with credits earned at the community college. This provides students with an opportunity to add a marketable credential to their resume that will help give them an edge in the workforce. Obtaining an associate degree also allows students to receive full credit for their academic achievements.

Transfer partners as of June 2015


If you recently transferred to WMU from one of our partner community colleges the Registrar’s Office will notify you via email that you are eligible for review based on the number of credit hours you have completed. All correspondence regarding the results of the review will be sent directly to you from the community college.

You are not guaranteed a degree from the community college. The community college will evaluate your coursework and determine if the degree requirements for the associate degree have been met.
