Reverse Degree

UofL has partnered with KCTCS and Ivy Tech to assist students with the obtainment of an associate degree after transfer.

If you began your education with any of our partners before transferring, or swirled, you may have earned enough credit hours to get an associate degree without realizing. Associate degrees can be awarded after:

  1. Earning at least 15 credit hours at JCTC.
  2. Earning 80 credit hours total between JCTC and UofL.
  3. Earning your general education credits.
  4. Maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or higher.

    There is nothing that you need to do to initiate the process for applying for a Reverse Degree at this time. Transfer Services will contact all eligible students twice a year, September 1st (for fall eligibility) and February 1st (for spring eligibility). Eligible students will receive an email in their UofL email account with detailed instructions and next steps. If you have any questions, not related to eligibility, prior to September and/or February 1st please feel free to contact our office at or call 502.852.0166.
