Western, UW-La Crosse Sign Transfer Agreement

News

Officials with Western Technical College and UW-La Crosse have formally announced a new Business Pathway transfer agreement for students in Western’s Associate of Science-Liberal Arts (ASLA) program beginning with the 2019-20 academic year.

Students enrolled in Western’s ASLA program can now earn 58-59 credits that will transfer into UW-La Crosse’s College of Business Administration, providing nearly junior status for its Accountancy; Economics; Finance; Finance: Risk, Insurance, and Financial Planning; Information Systems; Management; or Marketing majors. In addition to general education courses, Western students will enroll in a variety of Accounting and Business Law courses at Western, before completing the remaining business classes at UW-La Crosse.

“Providing more transfer opportunities for our students is critical,” said Western President Roger Stanford. “This agreement provides a clear, defined path for students that makes it easy and affordable to transfer into UW-La Crosse’s College of Business Administration. We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with them to make this agreement happen.”

“Bottom line, this is a great day for students from both institutions,” said UW-La Crosse Chancellor Joe Gow. “We already have a great partnership with Western, and this agreement only strengthens our commitment to our students by providing a clear opportunity for those wishing to transfer into UW-La Crosse.”
