Reverse Transfer

Reverse transfer is the transfer of credits from a four-year institution to any two-year institution from which a student transferred. It doesn’t matter if the student transferred to another associate degree granting or bachelor’s level institution first, attended public or private institutions, or transferred across state lines. If eligible, the student is awarded an associate degree.

Eligible students can receive a first associate degree that accurately reflects their educational attainment and allows them to compete more successfully in higher education and the workforce.

Central Valley Promise

The Central Valley Promise is a community effort to guarantee a path to college for students in our region. The Promise will ensure that if students and their parents pledge to do what it takes in middle and high school to prepare, college will be there for them in the future, guaranteed.

The Central Valley is joining 150 cities across the country offering College Promise programs, which aim to increase college readiness, affordability and success.
