WEST CENTRAL WISCONSIN – New agreements between the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UWL) and Western Technical College (WTC) have created pathways for students to continue their education and launch successful careers.

Leaders from the two colleges finalized agreements recently that allows students to transfer major credits from WTC to UWL in five fields: early childhood education, sociology, philosophy, history, and race, gender and sexuality studies. 

“This is a win-win, and that’s why you see so many happy faces,” Betsy Morgan, interim chancellor of UWL, said. “It benefits the students, it benefits (Western) and it benefits UWL because it creates more students with degrees. And that’s what we’re about.” 

While past transfer agreements have centered on general education courses, the recent signing permits students to transfer credits within their major, shortening their path to earning a degree. 

While most transfer students move from a two-year college to a four-year university, credits earned at UWL can also be transferred to Western.
