New articulation agreements will allow students earning a two-year degree at Fox Valley Technical College to seamlessly transfer to the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh or UW-Green Bay with junior standing to continue their education.
The agreements were signed today at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton by UW Oshkosh Chancellor Andrew Leavitt and FVTC President Chris Matheny, and Matheny and UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander.
“UWO and Fox Valley Technical College are again leveraging our two institutions’ proximity and distinctive but complementary missions to strengthen our academic relationship and bring us even closer in service to students,” Leavitt said. “This new agreement is the latest in a series of partnerships our two institutions have developed over the years. It is really about deepening our ongoing commitment to enhance opportunities for student access and success in higher education to citizens of northeastern Wisconsin and, specifically to learners in this region.”
Fox Valley Technical College officially started offering the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degree programs this week with the start of the spring semester.
“These agreements create new educational pathways for students in our district who have shown interest in beginning their college coursework at Fox Valley Technical College and then transferring to another school in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree,” Matheny said. “UW Oshkosh and UW-Green Bay have long been our partners in creating pathways from our technical degrees to their bachelor’s degree programs and this is yet another option.”
Each associate degree offered by FVTC consists of 60 credits, including 39 to 41 credits of general education and 19 to 21 credits of electives. The programs are financial aid eligible and meet the requirements for general education courses at UWO and UWGB.
FVTC, part of the Wisconsin Technical College System, offers more than 250 associate degree, technical diploma and other certificate programs. It serves more than 45,000 people each year, more than any other technical college in the state.
