Simplifying the Transfer Process
During your college career, you may decide to transfer from one Oklahoma state college or university to another. Information gathered by Oklahoma public colleges and universities indicates that, based on junior- and senior-level grade point averages, transfer students perform comparable to students who stay at the same college or university.
As of spring 2008, 30 percent of the students who entered a public or private two-year college in 2005 transferred to a public four-year institution, while 31 percent transferred from a public or private four-year school to a public two-year school. Eighteen percent moved from one public or private two-year college to a different public two-year college, and 21 percent transferred from one public or private four-year institution to a different public four-year institution. The percentage of public two-year to four-year transfer students who earned a bachelor's degree within six years has increased from 19.8 percent in 2002-03 to 38.1 percent in 2006-07.
Before you change schools, you should determine which courses would transfer. To make the process easier, the State Regents provide a course transfer matrix that outlines courses that will transfer among Oklahoma's public colleges and universities. To view the transfer matrix, click Course Transfer on the right menu. You can also contact the college you plan to attend to find out what courses are required for the major you have chosen.

What Is Reverse Transfer?
Many students enroll at community colleges and transfer courses from the community college to a university toward a bachelor’s degree. Reversing this process and transferring courses from the university back to the community college, is called reverse transfer. Students who transfer to a university before completing an associate degree and who have earned at least 15 credit hours from the community college may benefit from reverse transfer. The university courses that are transferred back to the community college may be used to fulfill degree requirements at both institutions. Therefore, students may earn the associate degree from the community college while attending the university. For more information, contact a reverse transfer campus contact (XLSX, 18k).
