Reverse transfer considerations for colleges and universities

Students' credit hours and grade-point averages should be part of decision to allow reverse transfers
University Business, November 2013

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.
