Reverse Transfer Degree
Although it is highly recommended that you complete your associate degree, there are times that transferring may be your best plan. You can still get your associate degree from NVC if you have successfully completed a minimum 15 hours at NVC and then send back to NVC official transcripts for evaluation. You will be awarded a degree when you have completed the required courses totaling 60 hours. Earning your associate degree gives you more opportunity while you are completing your bachelor’s degree.

Transfer articulation agreements allow students to take their first and second year coursework leading to a baccalaureate degree at Northwest Vista College, transfer the credits earned to a participating four-year college or university, and complete the remaining upper division coursework required for the Bachelor's Degree.
