Bev Schenkel, dean of enrollment management at Northwest Missouri State University, was recognized Sept. 16 during an event sponsored in Jefferson City, Mo., by the Coordinating Board for Higher Education and the Department of Higher Education to mark the statewide rollout of the Missouri Reverse Transfer Program.

Schenkel was recognized for her membership on the Missouri Reverse Transfer Steering Committee, which worked to implement the program between 2012 and 2014.

Legislation sponsored by Sen. David Pearce and Rep. Mike Thomson to create the Reverse Transfer Program was approved by the Missouri General Assembly in 2012, and Northwest subsequently led the way by establishing the state’s first reverse transfer agreement with North Central Missouri College. In 2013, Northwest also paired with Metropolitan Community College as part of a statewide pilot of the program.

The Reverse Transfer Program allows students who have earned a minimum of 15 credit hours at a community college and have transferred to a four-year university to transfer credit hours back to the community college to receive a marketable associate degree.

Missouri’s efforts to establish the program also have been recognized by the Lumina Foundation, a national organization working to increase the number of Americans with high-quality college degrees and professional certificates.
