Reverse Transfer 

Reverse transfer enables students to apply credits they earned at a four-year institution toward an associate degree or certificate at a two-year institution. In Rhode Island, the reverse transfer policy allows individuals to apply credits from the University of Rhode Island and Rhode Island College toward a degree or certificate at the Community College of Rhode Island. 

To be eligible for this program, students must meet CCRI degree or certificate requirements, including completing at least 15 credits at CCRI. Students can also apply credits earned through prior learning assessments, which award college credit for applicable work experience, employer training, military service, independent study, non-credit courses, volunteer or community service, or non-college courses or seminars.

Current and former URI, RIC, and CCRI students who are interested in this opportunity can find more details on the Reverse Transfer page.
