The Reverse Transfer Program is a collaborative effort between North Carolina Community Colleges and the UNC System.
A student who transfers from a North Carolina community college before earning the Associate in Arts (AA) or Associate in Science (AS) degree and who subsequently applies for one of these degrees through the North Carolina Reverse Transfer Program may request, through his or her department chair or advisor, that his or her records be reviewed as fulfilling the University's general education requirements under the current Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA) while still enrolled as a degree-seeking student. If the student has already met the University general education requirements through earned credit or enrollment of the course(s), there will not be any adjustments to the student's record.
Am I eligible for the Reverse Transfer Program?
You must have completed/earned at least 16 college-level credit hours at one community college that will apply toward your degree to be eligible to participate.
John attends community college A and earns 12 hours then attends community college B and earns 4 credit hours. Does this qualify? No.
Maria attends community college A and earns 16 credit hours. Does this qualify? Yes
How do I participate?
Eligible students will be asked to participate when they transfer to one of the participating universities through their student services account. Once you log into your student self-service account, click on the Student tab and then click Reverse Transfer Program and follow the prompts.
How will I know if I have been awarded the associate degree?
The community college will send notification to your Bronco email if the associate degree is awarded, including details on how to get a printed diploma and participate in graduation ceremonies.

Designed to assist transfer students in what to expect when transferring with an A.A. or A.S. degree into one of the four year degree plans. This plan does not substitute advisement in the specific discipline. Always confer with your advisor and/or department. Please visit Four Year Degree Plans, for more information.

As part of a partnership between Fayetteville State University and Richmond Community College, Fayetteville Technical Community College, Guilford Technical Community College, Davidson County Community College, Isothermal Community College, Bladen Community College, Vance-Granville Community College, Johnston Community College, Central Carolina Community College, and Blue Ridge Community College, associate's degree recipients can complete an online Bachelor's degree at FSU for a maximum "out of pocket" costs of $10,000.
How it Works:
(for illustrative purposes only, individual costs will vary):
Cost of Associate's Degree (60 credits): $5,000
Cost of 4-Year Degree Completion (60 credits): $8,000
Total Cost of 4-Year Degree: $13,000
Fayetteville State University Grant: ($3,000)
Student's Total "Out of Pocket" Cost: $10,000*
*"Out of pocket" costs refer to costs not covered by financial aid. Your cost may be much less than $10,000 if you are eligible for federal or state need-based grants.
Note: Cost estimates assume that student maintains continuous enrollment, enrolls in required courses only, earns final grades of A, B. or C, and does not withdraw from classes. FSU will provide an institutional scholarship each semester as needed to make sure total "out of pocket" cost does not exceed $10,000.
