Advisors from partnering universities are available on campus by appointment for transfer planning. Call (210) 486-4126 to set up appointment.

Reverse Transfer Degree

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