Modeling the Effect of the Reverse Credit Transfer Associate's Degree: Evidence from Two States
Taylor, Jason L.; Giani, Matt
Review of Higher Education, v42 n2 p427-455 Win 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of receiving an associate's degree via reverse credit transfer on retention and bachelor's degree attainment for students in Hawaii and Minnesota who transferred from a community college to a university before earning an associate's degree. Results showed mostly positive evidence with some null results, and we found no evidence that reverse credit transfer negatively influences students' progress toward the bachelor's degree. The results have implications for states and institutions who are developing and implementing reverse credit transfer programs and policies.
