Reverse Transfer

Reverse Transfer

Reverse transfer is when an associate degree is awarded to students who previously attended Central Piedmont and fulfilled the associate degree requirements while working towards a bachelor's degree at a participating university in North Carolina.

For more information, visit the Reverse Transfer Program page on the College Foundation of North Carolina website. 

Reverse Transfer Eligibility

  • You must have completed/earned at least 30 percent (21 college-level credit hours) at Central Piedmont. 
  • Your associate degree then depends on the credits earned at the university; each student’s credits will be evaluated to see if the combined credits meet the degree and graduation requirements. 
  • The universities will send data to us twice a year (approximately February and July). We will evaluate your earned credits until you have reached a total of 90 credits earned for the possibility of awarding the associate’s degree, so your information may be sent to us multiple times for evaluation.

We may contact you for additional information. 

How Reverse Transfer Works

Eligible students will be asked to participate when they transfer to one of the participating universities. Check your university emails regarding the program and be sure to “opt in” or check with a counselor for additional instructions if you do not receive the opt-in email. The CWID/Reverse Transfer program has different requirements. In order for these to apply, you must first enroll at the university.

  • After you have given permission for the university to send your records to us, you need to update your MyCollege credentials so that you can access your Central Piedmont email account.
  • The university will send your records to us after you have earned at least 60 credits.
  • We will download your data, evaluate your transcripts, pull in the appropriate courses, and certify if you are eligible.
  • In approximately 6 to 8 weeks, an email will be sent to your Central Piedmont email account and university account (if it was supplied to Central Piedmont). If you are eligible, you will receive a degree order form. You will receive an invitation to participate in the graduation ceremony the following May. Invitations will be sent in March/April.
  • If you are not eligible, you will be notified via email by CFNC/NCCCS.
