Reverse transfer allows former students who who began their education at Blinn to transfer credits they earned at a four-year university toward their associate degree.

Studies have shown that students who complete their associate degree are more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree. Earning an associate degree has many other benefits, including:

  • Enhances your resume to make you a more attractive job candidate
  • Allows you to earn income to fund a bachelor's degree
  • Shows initiative to complete academic milestones should you have to unexpectedly stop pursuing your bachelor's degree

You are eligible for reverse transfer if you:

  • Have taken at least 15 credit hours at Blinn
  • Met your current degree requirements
  • Earned a minimum of 60 credit hours, including coursework at your university

You can complete the reverse transfer process in two ways:

  1. Apply through your four-year university.
    • Most Texas universities have an automated system in which they send Blinn your transcript if you give consent to be a part of the Reverse Transfer Initiative.
    • This consent is included in the ApplyTexas application when you apply to the four-year institution. However, we recommend you check with your university's Registrar's office to comfirm that you would like to reverse transfer.
    • Blinn receives transcripts once a semester from the universities, and will evaluate them for transferrable courses and degree completion.
    • Students who meet the degree requirements are emailed with instructions on how to receive the diploma for their associate degree.

  2. Apply on your own.
    • Request an official transcript from the university you are attending or have attended to be sent to Blinn.
    • Submit Blinn’s Reverse Transfer Application.
    • Once your transcript is received by Blinn, it will be evaluated for transferrable courses and degree completion.
    • Students who meet the degree requirements are emailed with instructions on how to receive the diploma for their associate degree.
    • Students who are lacking requirements will be emailed with a brief description of needed requirements to complete the reverse transfer.
