Reverse Transfer Agreement

Reverse Transfer Process

Students from Harper College who are interested in the Reverse Transfer Agreement will need to inform the Roosevelt University Office of Admission when they apply for admission. If a student decides to participate in the reverse transfer agreement after enrolling at Roosevelt University, the student should contact the Office of the Registrar.
