DC transformer question

Lets say you have a step-up transformer. If you connect it to the circuit backwards/in reverse, will it become a step-down transformer? (Using the secondary coil as the input instead of the output). Since a transformer is just 2 coils and some soft iron, its not like it has any official polarity, correct?
