This Data Note is the seventh in a series of publications that shares research associated with the Credit When It’s Due (CWID) initiative. CWID is a multi-state initiative that supports the development and implementation of reverse credit transfer programs and policies that confer associate’s degrees to transfer students when they complete degree requirements while en route to the baccalaureate degree. Using data from seven CWID states, the purpose of this Data Note is to examine the types of associate’s degrees awarded via reverse credit transfer. As universities and community colleges collaborate to award associate’s degrees via reverse credit transfer, it is important to know what type of associate’s degrees students are receiving.
