Reverse Transfer Program

Reverse Transfer Program

Given today’s competitive job market and the value that hiring managers place on added academic credentials in employment decisions, BU has designed a pathway to an associate degree for those community college students who transferred to BU before obtaining this important hiring credential.

BU has partnered with Community Colleges to create a Reverse Transfer Program that offers eligible students, who transferred from their Community College to BU before earning an associate degree, the opportunity to transfer BU credits back to Community College to fulfill their Community College’s degree requirements and earn their associate degree. Earning your associate degree through this program costs you nothing and increases your credentials for a job!
