Missouri Reverse Transfer

Missouri Reverse Transfer

Missouri Reverse Transfer (MRT) is the process of allowing students who have completed credits towards an associates degree at a Missouri 2-year college to receive that degree while enrolled at Northwest.

Missouri has moved forward with a statewide policy to help more Missourians earn degrees.

Northwest will work with students to help send transcripts to our partner two-year institutions in order to facilitate the reverse transfer process.

For more detailed information on Missouri Reverse Transfer take a look at the Missouri Department of Higher Education website.

What are the BENEFITS?

Are you ELIGIBLE?

You must have earned a minimum of 15 credit hours at a single Missouri two-year institution to be eligible for a reverse transfer degree. Students are not eligible for the program if they currently possess an associates degree or higher.

How does Northwest Missouri State University help you with Reverse Transfer?

Northwest will work with students to help send transcripts to our partner 2-year institutions in order to facilitate the reverse transfer process.
