|Green Bay, Wis.—The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will be welcoming Associate’s Degree recipients from Lakeshore Technical College in the near future. Approval for these degrees was granted at the April 8 meeting of the University of Wisconsin Board of Regents. See the UW System release.
Through a new partnership with UW-Green Bay, students graduating with the AA or AS degree will have guaranteed junior standing when they enroll at UW-Green Bay.
“We are proud to continue to develop our collaboration with Lakeshore Technical College,” said UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander. “Students rightfully expect institutions of higher education to work well together and advocate for what students want in their education. Our partners at LTC are doing tremendous work and we are thrilled to be building a stronger educational ecosystem in Northeast Wisconsin with them.”
Degrees cover the 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. Once final approval is secured from the college’s regional accreditor, students enrolling in the AA and AS degrees will be able to access federal financial aid and veteran’s benefits while taking their general education courses at LTC.
“These new degrees, coupled with our partnership with UW-Green Bay, are a game changer for our students and our communities – students will save thousands of dollars on their way to a bachelor’s degree,” said LTC President Dr. Paul Carlsen, in a news release. “Partnerships like this will directly raise our region’s educational attainment rate.”
The general studies degree programs require 60 credits including elective courses that allow students to select courses that appeal to their future career plans.
