UWL, Western sign transfer agreements

College students can transfer from Western Technical College to UW-La Crosse much easier in many more majors. Officials from the two La Crosse higher education institutions made that possible by formally signing a number of transfer agreements for students in Western’s new Associate of Arts program Tuesday, Nov. 1.           

The agreements stem from Western’s new Associate of Arts program, which launched earlier this year after approval by the University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents. Agreements that were signed include admission to UWL’s Psychology, Exercise and Sport Science (ESS): Exercise Science Pre-Professional Track, and Exercise and Sport Science (ESS): Exercise Science Fitness Track bachelor’s degree programs, as well as several programs in UWL’s College of Business Administration.         

“UWL has an outstanding relationship with Western Technical College, and we are always collaborating on ways to offer students in our state and region more flexible options for completing college degrees,” says UWL Chancellor Joe Gow. “These two programs do just that, and they address future state workforce needs as well. We're very grateful to our colleagues at Western for partnering with us on these agreements.” 

“This is a tremendous day for education in the La Crosse region,” says Western President Roger Stanford. “Providing more transfer opportunities for our students is critical, and UWL is a terrific partner. These agreements help open the doors for more people by making bachelor’s degrees more attainable to more people. This is a big win for the community.”
