Reverse Transfer

North Carolina's Reverse Transfer Program is a state initiative in which students are awarded credit they have already earned or will earn at the four year university. The program is designed to award an associate degree to students who previously attended a North Carolina Community College and fulfilled the associate degree requirements while working towards a bachelor’s degree at a North Carolina university.

Reverse Transfer: Procedure for Students

  1. Log into Appalnet and click on student tab
  2. You will receive a Pop-Up requesting participation
  3. You can ignore the “pop up” twice. The third time it appears, you will have to make a selection in order to access “student information.”
  4. By virtue of “opt in”, you sign an agreement stating that you will follow Appalachian’s curriculum towards the baccalaureate degree and that you understand that academic advisors and/or the Office of Transfer Services cannot provide advising for community college coursework.
  5. Once you “opt in” no further action from you is required.

NOTE: If you are awarded the Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree through the Reverse Transfer program, Appalachian will honor the degree to meet our General Education requirements. Your advisor can only advise you on Appalachian’s degree requirements. It is your responsibility to understand your community college requirements for completing an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree.
