    Pre-admission Partnerships

    Reverse Transfer 
    Reverse transfer is a process by which students who transfer to a university prior to earning an associate degree can transfer credit hours back to Collin College and earn an associate of arts, associate of science, or an associate of arts in teaching degree. When graduation requirements for an associate degree are met, send a university transcript to Collin College and petition for graduation.
