Reverse Transfer Opportunity (RETRO)

Reverse Transfer

If you started at Jefferson and transferred to a university, you may have earned enough credit hours towards an associate degree. Associate degrees can be awarded after:

  1. Earning at least 15 credit hours at JCTC.
  2. Earning 60 credit hours total between JCTC and your university.
  3. Earning your general education credits.
  4. Maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or higher.

If you think that you might qualify for an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree, here’s what you can do:

  • Pull up an Academic Program Plan (APP) and see what classes you have already taken
  • Contact a JCTC advisor.
  • Contact the records office at your school about sending transcripts to JCTC.

Apply at JCTC for graduation.

Apply by October 1st in the fall and March 1st in the spring. Then be on the look out for further communications from Jefferson.
