Reverse Transfer Agreements

Did you transfer to Ferris before you earned your associate degree? If you have a combined 60+ credits, you may have already earned a degree. The process is easy and free.

Having an Associate Degree matters!

Reverse transfer is a process for awarding an associate degree to students who transfer from a community college to Ferris State University without having earned a degree. Through a combination of credits earned from the community college and Ferris, students may be eligible to earn a degree without taking any additional classes and no additional cost.
