    Credit Transfer Opportunities

    WCTC has agreements with local high schools and various four-year colleges and universities that enable students to transition more seamlessly from high school to WCTC to four-year colleges. Transcripted credit agreements provide high school students the opportunity to take WCTC courses at their high schools. Agreements with four-year colleges enable WCTC graduates in selected programs to transfer credits, often at junior-level standing. Agreements currently in place for this program are listed below.

    There are no credit transfer agreements for this program at this time. For more information, contact your academic advisor.

    UW-System Credit Transfer

    If you are interested in attending a UW-campus, you should contact a transfer representative at the campus you plan to attend. You may also check credit transfer agreements between WCTC and the UW System to tell you which specific courses and general education classes may be accepted.

    Important Cautionary Note:
    This information is intended as a general description. Please verify the availability and details of the program that interests you with the transfer coordinator at the receiving institution.
