Are you a student at another college or university who attended Columbus State previously,
but left before earning your degree?
Are you interested in getting your Columbus State degree using your credits from your
current college or university?
If so, please consider our Reverse Transfer program. Reverse Transfer is intended
for students who have Columbus State credit, but transferred on to other institutions
prior to earning their degree. With Reverse Transfer, students can apply credits from
their bachelor’s degree course work toward a Columbus State degree. An advisor will
evaluate your credits and if everything fits the requirements you have remaining,
you can earn your degree. It’s that easy!
Earning your associate’s degree may help you obtain a better job or promotion - and
it supports completion of your bachelor’s degree.
If you are interested in learning if you are eligible for Reverse Transfer, please
complete our information request form. An advisor will contact you via email or phone.
If it is determined that you are eligible, the advisor will contact you regarding
the submission of your official documentation and will advise you of the Reverse Transfer
process going forward. You will be evaluated for the degree requirements you are closest
to. Only one degree will be awarded.
