Students in eastern Wisconsin have a new option on their path to a bachelor’s degree thanks to a partnership between the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and Lakeshore Technical College (LTC). The transfer agreement allows LTC students who graduate with a new associate of arts or associate of science degree to enroll at UW Oshkosh with guaranteed junior standing.
The new associate degree programs launched with the start of LTC’s fall term. Both degrees cover general education requirements for a student whose goal is to transfer to a four-year college to earn a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree.
“This new partnership with UW Oshkosh means our students and our community will have more options available as they start their baccalaureate journey,” said LTC President Paul Carlsen. “We are thankful for Chancellor (Andy) Leavitt’s leadership and vision in establishing Lakeshore as a meaningful transfer partner with UW Oshkosh.”
Carlsen said UWO is a popular choice among the more than 400 students who transfer each year from LTC to four-year colleges.
“Today’s agreement is one more example of higher education in the Fox Valley and northeastern Wisconsin responding to our region. You don’t have to zoom out on any map to realize UWO and Lakeshore Technical College are neighbors,” Leavitt said. “The lives and journeys of our students often intersect, and now we can celebrate and promote one more fundamental way we are, together, making it easier for learners to access and progress toward a college degree, earning outstanding credentials and experience along the way.”
