Community College Research Initiatives

Credit When It’s Due

The Credit When It’s Due (CWID) initiative is a multi-foundation funded, multi-state initiative designed to facilitate the implementation of reverse transfer policies and processes that benefit college students who have transferred from the community college to the bachelor’s level and have not secured an associate’s degree at the time of transfer. The initiative is designed to encourage partnerships of community colleges and universities to significantly expand programs that award associate degrees to transfer students when students complete the requirements for the associate degree while pursuing a bachelor’s degree. CCRI is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to research this initiative.
