STARKVILLE, Miss.â€” Students who transfer from a Mississippi community or junior college now have the opportunity to complete their associateâ€™s degree while enrolled at Mississippi State University, thanks to an agreement between the stateâ€™s Community College Board and Board of Trustees of State Institutions of Higher Learning.
The Reverse Transfer Credit Agreement allows students to transfer credits earned at MSU or another institution of higher learning to their two-year college to complete requirements for an associateâ€™s degree without interrupting matriculation toward a baccalaureate degree.
After admission to an IHL university, transfer students earning at least 16 college credit hours from a single MCCB community or junior college will be notified after completing 64 hours that they may be eligible for the associateâ€™s degree.
University Registrar John R. Dickerson said eligible students will be required to log in to their myState account, click the â€śBannerâ€ť tab, select â€śCommunity College Reverse Transferâ€ť under the â€śAcademic Recordsâ€ť tab, and follow on-screen instructions to complete the process.
Once the studentâ€™s request has been received, the MSU Registrarâ€™s Office will send the studentâ€™s transcript to the two-year college registrarâ€™s office. That college will then perform the degree audit and determine whether requirements for the associateâ€™s degree have been satisfied.
