Reverse Transfer: Paving the Pathway. ECS Education Policy Analysis
Anderson, Lexi
Education Commission of the States
States are taking several distinct approaches to implement reverse transfer policies. Although contextualized by state-specific factors, approaches to policy implementation commonly include determination of a group or regulatory body responsible for policy oversight, technology, funding and identification of students eligible to participate in reverse transfer programs. This analysis is the second in a series of three briefs discussing reverse transfer policies, their implementation and outcomes data from the states. As defined in the first issue brief, reverse transfer is "the process of retroactively granting associate degrees to students who have not completed the requirements of an associate degree before they transferred from a two- to a four-year institution. [See the first brief: "Reverse Transfer: The Path Less Traveled. ECS Education Trends" at ED556470.]
