A new transfer agreement provides yet another option for graduates of Wisconsin’s 16 technical colleges.
Wisconsin Technical College System graduates can now transfer all successfully completed associate degree credits to Ottawa University and apply them toward bachelor degree requirements. Successfully completed courses are those in which students earn a C or better.
“This agreement provides another opportunity for students and gives them the assurance they can extend their education beyond the associate degree, which is opening more and more doors for individuals every day,” said Dan Clancy, WTCS president.
Ottawa University will accept up to 80 credits and WTCS students with associate degrees will typically have fulfilled Ottawa’s breadth area requirements as a result of completing WTCS requirements.
Ottawa University has campuses in Brookfield and Oak Creek, Wis.; Overland Park, Kan.; Jeffersonville, Ind.; and Phoenix, Chandler and Surprise, Ariz. The institution also offers many online degree programs. Students at the Wisconsin campuses can earn bachelor’s degrees in 15 majors and master’s degrees in business administration or human resources.
“Ottawa University is pleased and excited about our new transfer agreement with the 16-school Wisconsin Technical College System. This agreement provides students from around the state with a dynamic educational pathway that links strong, cutting-edge technical education with a professional and liberal arts education that Ottawa University has been providing for 146 years,” said Dr. Wade Mauland, Ottawa University-Wisconsin campus executive. “With an ever-changing, dynamic and global workplace, students can benefit from a synthesis of technical understanding gained at our state’s great technical colleges with the applied critical-thinking, communication and advanced problem-solving skills afforded at Ottawa University.”
North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accredit all Wisconsin technical colleges as well as Ottawa University and the University of Wisconsin System institutions.
