Adult Degree Program finalizes new tech-college partnerships in SE Wisconsin
The Adult Degree Program reached a milestone last Wednesday, Oct. 9, holding formal signing ceremonies to mark the establishment of new agreements with Waukesha County Technical College and Milwaukee Area Technical College. Members of both institutions’ leadership met with Chancellor Tom Harden, Provost Julia Wallace, and several other UW-Green Bay faculty and staff to sign resolutions outlining the new partnerships. These agreements focus on graduates of WCTC and MATC being able to transfer 60 credits from their technical college work into UW-Green Bay’s Bachelor of Applied Studies degree and the Interdisciplinary Studies major. These students will transfer to UW-Green Bay as juniors and will be able to complete their bachelor’s degree fully online. These specific partnerships are also special because UW-Green Bay has a full-time staff member permanently stationed on these campuses, serving the southeast region of the state as a recruiter and academic adviser. WCTC and MATC join other Wisconsin Technical College System campuses with similar agreements with UWGB, including Fox Valley Technical College, Northcentral Technical College, and Nicolet College.
