Transfer Student Admission
Reverse Transfer

Michigan State University has Reverse Transfer Agreements with several community colleges in Michigan. Reverse transfer is the process by which transfer students enrolled at a four-year institution transfer credits back to a community college for the purpose of attaining a degree, diploma, or certification from the community college.

MSU transfer students may indicate their interest in reverse transfer by completing a Reverse Transfer Transcript Release Form in order to have their university transcript sent back to their community college. The community college will evaluate the course work to determine whether degree, diploma, or certification requirements are met and whether a degree or other credential will be awarded by the community college. Any community-college degree or other credential will be awarded in the semester or year all final requirements are met at the community-college.

Students interested in this opportunity should view the current agreements and complete the Transcript Release Form
