Lawson State Community College (LSCC) participates in the Reverse Transfer Program.  Reverse transfer assists students who earned credits that applied towards an Associate Degree while enrolled at a community college but who did not complete sufficient credits to earn their Associate Degree.  These students then pursued their education at a four-year institution.  This agreement is designed to facilitate the transfer of credits earned by students at a four-year institution back to the community college to complete their Associate Degree.  Student consent for FERPA purposes will be obtained prior to any reverse transfer data exchange. 

Students will be eligible for Reverse Transfer when they have met the following criteria:
  1.  Have earned at least 25% of the credit hours required for their degree from a member institution in the Alabama Community College System (ACCS)
  2.  Have earned at least 3 semester credit hours from the four-year institution.
  3.  Adhere to all policies and guidelines related to student admissions and transfer at both the four-year institutions and ACCS colleges. (Good standing)
  4.  ACCS institutions will follow local policies for transfer credit.  Student must have a cumulative GPA 2.0 for graduation requirements. (ACCS Policy 715.01)
