Reverse Transfer

What is Reverse Transfer?

Reverse Transfer is the unique process of awarding an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree retroactively to Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) students who previously attended FSW but transferred to a four-year institution before completing the A.A.

Florida’s Statewide Reverse Transfer Articulation Agreement facilitates seamless articulation of student credit and provides for Reverse Transfer. With Reverse Transfer, you can send earned credits back to FSW to be evaluated for a possible degree.

Why get an associate degree?

  • Increase your earning potential.
  • Boost your resume.
  • Advance your career.
  • Improve your eligibility for a promotion.
  • Achieve an accomplishment.
  • The AA is often required or highly beneficial for admission to other institutions.

Who is eligible?

Eligible students for the Reverse Transfer process are currently-enrolled university students who meet the following criteria:

  • Have earned at least 30 credits at FSW.
  • Transferred from FSW without the AA.
  • Have not earned the Bachelor’s degree.
  • Are in a good academic standing.
  • Complete the civic literacy requirement per section 1007.25(4), Florida Statutes (F.S.).
  • Complete the foreign language requirement per F.S. 1007.25(8).
