Reverse Transfer

Reverse transfer is a unique process for awarding associate degrees to students who have transferred in pursuit of a bachelor's degree before completing the requirements for an associate degree at a two-year institution.

If you are currently attending the University of Utah, you may be eligible to receive an associate degree from SLCC.

Minimum Criteria/Qualifications:

35 credit hours completed at SLCC

26 credit hours completed from the University of Utah

In order to obtain an associate degree from SLCC, you may need additional credits, depending on the classes you’ve taken. There is no charge to participate.

Here are the required steps:

  1. Please email Zack Schafer if you are interested in participating.
  2. Submit an Admission Application Update.

Allow 30 days for SLCC to obtain your transcript from your four-year school and to evaluate your eligibility.

Eligible students can email for more information.

Currently, we do not have active Reverse Transfer agreements with any other university or four-year colleges.

Former SLCC students who are interested in transferring credit back to SLCC from other colleges can follow the same steps required for SLCC Transfer Evaluation to have their credit evaluated at SLCC towards graduation requirements.

Please note: You may need to Reapply to SLCC or submit an Admission Application Update before we can evaluate your prior transcript.
