Degree Within Reach: Colorado’s Reverse Transfer Program

You’ve done the work, you deserve the credit!

Degree Within Reach helps transfer students maximize their earning potential and career opportunities by earning the degrees they deserve. This program allows students to combine credits earned at Western State Colorado University with those earned while enrolled at a Colorado community college.

We will contact you via email if you are eligible to earn an associate of science, associate of arts or associate of general studies through Degree Within Reach and will award the highest degree if all degree requirements have been met.

To be eligible, you must have earned at least 15 credit hours at a Colorado community college and have accumulated a minimum of 70 total college credit hours, including coursework at the four-year institution.

If you qualify for one of the above mentioned degrees, it will be awarded to you. Thank you for your interest in Degree Within Reach. Learn more by visiting the website at degreewithinreach.org. Questions? Please direct them to one of the contacts listed on the website.
