Students who have earned 15 or more credits at CSM and have transferred to a four-year institution without an associate's degree may “reverse transfer” the earned credits from the four-year institution to complete an associate’s degree. This process makes it possible for students to earn an associate’s degree as they continue to work toward completing their bachelor’s degree. Learn more.
