Reverse transfer your credits from your bachelor's degree program back to Delta College to earn your associate's degree

Transfer your credits from a two-year college to a four-year institution and earn your degree. Strike that! Reverse it!

It happens often. Students transfer to university before earning their associate’s degree. But you took those classes and earned those credits, why not claim your degree? With Reverse Transfer you can bring credits from your bachelor’s degree courses back to Delta College to get your associate’s degree.

Dr. David Hopkins, dean of Transfer Programs and Online Learning, did just that. Finding a new sense of pride, community and full-circle completion after earning two associate’s degrees from Delta College through the Reverse Transfer program earlier this year. His new degrees are framed and displayed proudly on his office wall.

“For me, it’s more sentimental. It solidified my connection to Delta and brought about that sense of pride,” said Dr. Hopkins. “It’s very likely, that if it hadn’t been for my time as a student here at Delta, I never would have gotten the three other degrees I have. I learned so much here; I drew so much inspiration from the instructors I had.”

To anyone considering earning a degree or certificate through Reverse Transfer, Dr. Hopkins strongly recommends working with an advisor who will help you through the process and ensure requirements have been met.
