Tennessee Reverse Transfer
The Tennessee Reverse Transfer Program is a process that allows transfer students who are currently attending a four-year school to combine four-year college credits with community college credits to receive an associate degree. Unfortunately, challenges arise that can disrupt a student's progress toward completing a bachelor’s degree. By completing an associate degree, students ensure that those credits don’t go to waste.
The Spring 2023 Reverse Transfer Cycle has begun. Please refer to the schedule below.

This subcouncil focuses on the advancement of the effectiveness of the Tennessee Reverse Transfer Program, which allows students who started their postsecondary education at a Tennessee Community College to receive an Associate Degree after they’ve transferred to a four-year university. The subcouncil will have oversight of the Reverse Transfer process and policies and will review the policy and its impact annually. As of January 2023, THEC is responsible for the centralized administration and coordination of The Tennessee Reverse Transfer
System (TRTS) for the state.
