Purdue Fort Wayne and the Reverse Transfer
Purdue Fort Wayne will work with students to help send transcripts to our partner two-year institutions in order to facilitate the reverse transfer process. Transcripts will be sent free of charge once a student has at least 75 combined credit hours, has identified interest in an associate award, and has filled out the reverse transfer transcript request.
How to Get Started
Reverse transfer is a seamless and easy process. Your permission is needed to share your transcripts with the two-year institution. You can provide this by filling out the Purdue University Fort Wayne Reverse Transfer Transcript Request. Please understand that partner institutions may have additional requirements in order for an associate degree to be conferred.
