Millikin University, Lake Land College announce reverse transfer agreement

Posted: Updated:

CENTRAL ILLINOIS – Millikin University officials announce the university, along with Lake Land College, will have a reverse transfer agreement that will take effect starting with the 2016 – 17 academic year.

This agreement allows credits completed at Millikin University to be transferred back to the student’s Lake Land transcript to complete requirements for an associate degree. The agreement will make it easier for Lake Land students to study at Millikin sooner without forgoing the opportunity to earn a degree at Lake Land College.

Millikin University President Dr. Patrick White says the agreement will better serve Lake Land students who decide to further their education at Millikin.

“Lake Land College and Millikin University both benefit from this agreement because our students are able to gain and utilize the full credit for their learning at both institutions. We all get stronger when our students prosper,” Dr. White explains.

Students enrolled at Millikin University who previously attended Lake Land College, or are currently enrolled at Lake Land and acquired a minimum of 32 credit hours, may be eligible for reverse transfer credit toward a Lake Land associate degree.

Additionally, those Lake Land students that are admitted to and enrolled at Millikin with a minimum of 32 transfer credits will be notified if they never completed their associate degree about the agreement.

Lake Land College President Dr. Josh Bullock says this agreement will benefit students as they work toward their bachelor’s degree.

“Having an associate degree can open employment options to [students] as they complete a bachelor’s degree. Our regional economy grows when we work together to create new opportunities for the people in our communities,” Dr. Bullock says.

Those in need of more information about the agreement and how to proceed should contact either Lake Land College’s Admissions and Records office or Millikin University’s Office of the Registrar.

Lake Land’s office can be reached by phone at 217-234-5434, by email at or by visiting their website. Millikin’s office can be reached by phone at 217-424-6217 or by visiting their website.
