Meet Cameron Rodish. Cameron began her academic career at Randolph Macon College, where she took a few classes and then realized it was not for her. Several years later, after she started working, got married, and had a baby, she knew she wanted to return to college for better opportunities and to be a positive example for her daughter. She started taking classes part-time at NOVA in 2005 and is now in her last semester. She has also been accepted to Liberty University for the fall to continue working towards her Bachelor’s degree. She said that the journey has not been easy, but she took it semester by semester and it has paid off. I look forward to seeing her walk across the stage at Commencement (graduation) this May.
The reverse-transfer is very common at NOVA. Reverse-transfer students are students who began at a four-year college or university and then transferred to NOVA for a variety of reasons. Many of them have plans to earn their Associate's Degrees and then return to a 4-year college or university for their Bachelor's Degrees.
What are your reverse-transfer stories?
