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 for completion of their bachelor's degree prior to earning their associate's 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.
