Like most state universities in Michigan, the University of Michigan-Dearborn has entered into several reverse-transfer agreements with community colleges in recent years. In determining whether to activate the reverse-transfer process for a particular student, UM-Dearborn examines several criteria, says Ken Kettenbeil, vice chancellor for external relations. Here’s his checklist of items to consider:
- Number of credit hours transferred from the community college
- Number of credit hours completed at the university
- Student’s grade point average, which indicates successful completion of courses
If all these criteria are satisfactory, the transcript can be forwarded to the community college for consideration.
