Collin College, TWU Agree On 'Reverse Transfer' Program
June 3, 2011 – Collin College and Texas Woman’s University (TWU) are teaming up to increase degrees awarded in North Texas. On May 25, the two institutions formed a new partnership in the form of a Reverse Transfer Program.
The program provides students who transferred from Collin College to TWU before completing their associate degree an opportunity to earn the degree. While a student at TWU, university credits can be transferred back to Collin College.
“This partnership will be a great benefit to students,” said Dr. Brenda Kihl, vice president of Academic and Institutional Effectiveness at Collin College. “With the help of TWU, former Collin College students will be notified of the reverse transfer program and awarded the associate’s degree they earned after transferring.”
“We at TWU are delighted to have this reverse-transfer partnership with Colin College,” said Dr. Robert Neely, TWU provost and vice president for academic affairs. “This agreement is clearly in the best interest of those students coming to TWU from Collin College, and is but one example of the kinds of collaborations that strengthen the nature of higher education in Texas.”
Students will have to meet Collin College degree requirements and agree to the sharing of their transcripts.
TWU and Collin College also have a pre-admission partnership, which allows Collin College students to gain access to university advisors, scholarship opportunities and other perks while finishing their core curriculum.
