WCC and U-M Sign Reverse Transfer Agreement
WCC President Rose B. Bellanca and University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman have signed a reverse transfer agreement that allows students to qualify for an associate degree at WCC with credits earned at U-M. The agreement applies to WCC students who transfer to Michigan within 15 credits of graduation.
Kimberly Bryant, associate director of undergraduate admissions at U-M, says that more students transfer to Michigan from WCC than from any other two- or four-year institution in the country.
“We are very pleased and proud that WCC students continue their education at the University of Michigan each year,” said Bellanca. “A degree from WCC is an important accomplishment and milestone for everyone who puts a high value on their education.”
“The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor is pleased to join Washtenaw Community College in a reverse transfer agreement, allowing hundreds of currently enrolled U-M students who transferred from WCC the opportunity to receive their associate degree,” said Lester Monts, senior vice provost for academic affairs at U-M. “This agreement allows us to acknowledge and reward the academic excellence these students achieved while enrolled at WCC. When they graduate from U-M, they will own two degrees from two high-quality institutions.”
