Student Transfer

Improving opportunities for Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) students seeking to transfer credit to University of Wisconsin (UW) System institutions is a long-standing priority.  Leadership of the WTCS and the UW System have worked together to develop solutions that are responsive to the demands of students, employers, and taxpayers, promoting seamless solutions to transfer while safeguarding the integrity of the educational experiences offered by the technical colleges and UW System institutions.

WTCS also has a long history of transfer agreements with four-year colleges and universities, such as the Milwaukee School of Engineering, Lakeland College and Marian University. Agreements may be for a specific program or for the transfer of a fixed number of technical college credits that count toward a bachelor degree.

The number of agreements and the number of WTCS students transferring credits to UW System institutions have increased. In addition, given the significant growth in online learning opportunities and student mobility, WTCS colleges have even begun to reach agreements with colleges and universities based outside of Wisconsin.

WTCS collaborates in the maintenance of a robust, web-based Transfer Information System that provides students and parents with detailed information regarding transfer opportunities. Valuable information can also be found on the
