The Missouri Reverse Transfer (MRT) program provides an opportunity for students who have transferred from a 2-year college to a 4-year college or university to earn an associate degree. Students who have stopped out of higher education but who have earned credit at either a 2-year or 4-year institution may also be eligible to recieve a reverse transfer degree. This is a statewide initiative to help more Missourians earn degrees. All public and a number of independent colleges and universities in the state particpate in the MRT program. There are no additional fees for students to participate in the MRT program. Find detailed information about Missouri Reverse Transfer at the Missouri Department of Higher Education & Workforce Development website.
Missouri Reverse Transfer is set up so that you as the student do not have to do a lot of work. We want this to be seamless and easy. You will need to give UCM permission to share your official transcripts with your 2-year college. It is as easy as completing a form. This is referred to as Opting In. There are no fees to participate in the MRT program.
In an effort to remain FERPA compliant, all students wishing to participate in MRT are required to “opt-in” to the program. By doing so, the student agrees to the exchange of transcript information between the two institutions and is automatically declared for degree candidacy. If a student self-identifies to be removed from the program or graduates from the institution, this will result in an automatic “opting-out” of MRT by that student. If MRT decisions are not acceptable to the MRT student, that student is then allowed to appeal said decisions by contacting the articulation and transfer officer at the degree-granting institution.
