A new transfer agreement provides yet another transfer 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’s 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 that 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; 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.
