Credit Transfer Opportunities

WCTC has agreements with local high schools and various four-year colleges and universities that enable students to transition more seamlessly from high school to WCTC to four-year colleges. Transcripted credit agreements provide high school students the opportunity to take WCTC courses at their high schools. Agreements with four-year colleges enable WCTC graduates in selected programs to transfer credits, often at junior-level standing. Agreements currently in place for this program are listed below.

Partnership Program

What is a Partnership Program?

Waukesha County Technical College has partnership agreements with other Wisconsin Technical College System colleges to offer selected allied health programs. Through the partnership agreements, the “host” college offers the program, but saves slots for students from WCTC and other cooperating colleges.

How does a partnership program work?

WCTC students who enroll in partnership programs may enroll in general education courses at WCTC. Most major coursework is taken through the host college via videos, distance education and/or traveling to the host college. Clinical work will be performed ether in the WCTC district or host college district, depending on the program of study. Students enrolled in partnership programs will graduate from the host college, not WCTC.
