Alcorn’s new Reverse Transfer Initiative allows students to complete associate degree while pursuing bachelor’s degree

Alcorn State University continues to provide avenues for its students to reach maximum success.

The Reverse Transfer Credit Agreement is the University’s newest initiative that allows students who transfer from a Mississippi community college without finishing their associate degree to complete their two-year degree while enrolled at Alcorn. Students will be able to transfer credits earned at Alcorn or another institution of higher learning to their community college in order to complete requirements for an associate degree without interrupting their progress toward an Alcorn baccalaureate degree. After admission to Alcorn, transfer students earning at least 16 college credit hours from a single community college will be notified after completing 46 hours at Alcorn that they may be eligible for the associate degree.

Dr. John Igwebuike, vice provost for Academic Affairs and Student Records, said that the initiative will benefit everyone involved.

“The reverse transfer initiative is a major win for Alcorn and its students,” said Igwebuike. “A highly educated and credentialed workforce offers a bounty of benefits in standard of living, innovations, security, contributions to the tax base and retirement systems and quality of life.”
