What is Reverse Transfer?

Reverse Transfer is the process of retroactively granting associate degrees to students who have not completed the requirements of an associate degree before they transferred from a Kansas community college or technical college to a Kansas public university. 

Within the first year, students who transfer coursework from a community college or technical college to a public university will be notified if they are eligible to be considered for Reverse Transfer.  Eligible students must have completed 45 credit hours at one or more public community colleges or technical colleges in Kansas and must consent to the release of their academic records.  Academic records will be evaluated for degree completion and degrees will be conferred based upon a satisfactory evaluation.  

Why do Reverse Transfer?

A college degree is key to economic opportunity.  Research shows that on average, people with more education make more money than those with less.  Associate degree holders average about $200,000 more over a lifetime than individuals with some college but no degree, while bachelor’s degree holders average over $720,000 more. 

The associate degree represents an educational achievement, a credential for career advancement, and a building block to additional academic accomplishments.  Further, research shows that students who earn the associate degree via reverse transfer are more likely to continue their education and complete a bachelor’s degree.

Each year faculty from all 32 institutions participate in the Kansas Core Outcomes Groups Conference (KCOG) to articulate core outcomes for specified courses recommended for Systemwide Transfer (SWT).

The 2023 KCOG Conference will be held VIRTUALLY on October 6, 2023, hosted by Kansas City Kansas Community College. Check back in the fall for more information. 


To facilitate transfer and articulation across the system of public higher education, the Kansas Board of Regents established a Transfer and Articulation Council (TAAC) with oversight responsibility of implementing the transfer and articulation policy.

Faculty led discipline-specific groups (Kansas Core Outcomes Groups) meet annually or as necessary, to confirm or articulate learning outcomes and discuss courses for inclusion in the Kansas Systemwide Transfer process.  Each course has core outcomes, which are observable and measurable actions that students will be able to perform upon successful completion of a course. Additional information about the work and duties of faculty at KCOGs is available in the Overview of Transfer and Articulation Council and Kanas Core Outcomes Groups.

Kansas Core Outcomes Groups Reports are developed annually and include reports from each discipline group:
