Reverse Transfer Project from Clearinghouse

October 22, 2014

The National Student Clearinghouse this week announced it would use a grant from the Lumina Foundation to create a national, automated system for exchanging "reverse transfer" student data. Reverse transfer in this case refers to when a transfer student's four-year institution sends credits back to a two-year institution from which the student transferred. The nonprofit Clearinghouse wants to help by creating a standardized and centralized way for colleges to exchange reverse-transfer credits. As many as two million students could earn associate degrees through the project, according to the Clearinghouse.
