NWTC and UW-Green Bay enhance partnership, guarantee transfers in key programs

GREEN BAY (WLUK) — Two Green Bay higher education institutions are expanding their partnership to benefit students pursuing a bachelor’s degree.

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) and UW-Green Bay signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on Monday.

The MOU states that students from NWTC will now be guaranteed admission into UW-Green Bay within the Human Biology, Marketing, and Psychology programs, which have been the most preferred pathways for transfer students.

“The expanded partnership with UW-Green Bay, reaffirms our shared commitment to the success of our students and community,” said NWTC President, Kristen Raney. “By bridging the gap between technical education and university pathways, we are not just developing talent, but laying a foundation of social mobility within our region and beyond. On behalf of NWTC, we look forward to continuing this work with UW-Green Bay and to building a thriving future together.”

Saving students thousands in tuition costs and providing guaranteed transfer as a junior status, the expanded transfer program will provide affordable and accessible pathways to obtain a bachelor’s degree.

About 50% of NWTC transfer students choose to attend UW-Green Bay. Over the past six years, more than 1,000 UW-Green Bay graduates started at NWTC. Among those students, the primary area of study for those transfer pathways are business administration, psychology, nursing, human biology, and education.
