Transfer Students: Don’t Miss Your Chance to Get an Associate’s Degree with the Credits You’ve Already Earned

Did you transfer to UT from a Tennessee community college before finishing your associate’s degree? If so, you may now be eligible for a Tennessee Reverse Transfer degree. Finding out is easy, but the deadline is Saturday, February 28.

Tennessee’s new reverse transfer program allows students who transfer from a Tennessee community college to a four-year school to receive an associate’s degree when requirements are met in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.

Eligible students are those who earned a minimum of 15 college-level credits at a Tennessee community college, transferred before earning an associate’s degree, and now have a combined total of 60 completed college-level credits.

Almost 1,000 UT students were notified February 6 and invited to sign up for a free degree audit. Community colleges will notify students eligible for reverse transfer associate’s degrees and those lacking credits. Eligible students will be identified and notified each semester.

If you received an e-mail but have not yet signed up to participate, you have until February 28 to do so. If you can’t find the e-mail or didn’t receive it but feel you may qualify, contact UT’s program manager, Gloria Gammell, or speak with your advisor.
