Missouri Reverse Transfer allows community college students to continue working toward completing their associate's degree after transferring to UMKC.

By transferring the hours you earn toward your UMKC bachelor's degree back to your community college, your coursework could help you earn degrees from both schools. Additionally, UMKC and your community college cover the cost of sharing transcripts for you!

The benefits of Missouri Reverse Transfer

  • Possibly meet UMKC general education requirements
  • Maximize your credits and earn two degrees at the same time
  • UMKC works with your community college to exchange transcripts each semester at no cost to you 
  • Make yourself more employable! Qualify for more job opportunities or possible career advancement with an earned associate's degree


Students may opt in to Missouri Reverse Transfer if they are enrolled at UMKC as a degree-seeking student, have at least 15 transferable credit hours from a participating single, 2-year institution and have not yet earned an associate's degree or bachelor's degree. Visiting (non-degree seeking) students are not eligible for Missouri Reverse Transfer.
