Interested in continuing your education at a four-year college or university? WCTC has credit transfer agreements with many four-year institutions that allow our degree graduates to transfer credits into a baccalaureate program, often at junior-level standing.
Learn more through the search boxes below. This information is a general overview; we strongly encourage you to verify availability and details of your specific program by contacting the transfer coordinator at the college or university you plan to transfer to.
You can explore credit transfer between the Wisconsin Technical College System and UW System at Transfer Wisconsin. Contact the receiving college/university directly to verify accuracy.

Colleges often have specific admissions requirements and policies for transfer students. Join a school’s mailing list and connect with the transfer admissions counselor to stay on top of requirements and deadlines.
Be sure to ask the admissions counselor about the maximum number of transferable credits and how to maximize credit transfer to avoid losing credits, as well as financial aid options, including scholarship availability.
- Prepare application materials.
Once you decide on which school(s) you are applying to, pay attention to their application deadlines. Some schools admit students throughout the year, while others have clear cut-off dates. Be sure to submit your financial aid application to help plan for financing.
