UW/WTCS Policy on Credit Transfer

Any student enrolled in the Wisconsin Technical College System who wishes to continue their education in the University of Wisconsin System may be eligible to transfer credits toward a bachelor’s degree.

UW institutions may accept in transfer up to forty-eight (48) BTC core credits. In cases where UW institutions find such course work not acceptable for transfer, BTC students should have an opportunity to earn credit by examination if the UW institution offers a course which is generally comparable in content and/or title.

UW System students who have successfully completed an Associate of Applied Arts/Science Degree may be eligible to transfer certain technical support and/or occupational credits when there is a direct relationship between BTC’s Associate Degree program and a program offered at a UW System institution.

Students transferring from the WTCS may earn credits by earning appropriate scores on national standardized examinations (e.g., College Level Examination Program) or examinations developed by the UW System transfer institution.

For more information about transfer opportunities, you should consult with your advisor or contact the admissions office at the UW System institution or private college of your choice.
