UW-Platteville, Madison College sign transfer agreements

They say good things come in threes. If that's the case, students at Madison College and UW-Platteville will be happy to learn about three new transfer agreements between the schools. They involve programs in business management, construction management and criminal justice. 

"For our collective students, these agreements provide a clear path toward a bachelor’s degree, or higher, in these exciting and high demand fields," said Dr. Turina Bakken, provost of Madison College. 

The agreements will allow Madison College students to transfer their associate degree credits directly to UW-Platteville's bachelor's degree programs.

"We are very excited to strengthen our relationship with Madison College through these agreements," said Dr. Tammy Evetovich, interim chancellor of UW-Platteville. "Both of our institutions play an important role in meeting the needs of the workforce in Southern Wisconsin, and this renewed partnership will allow us to continue doing this, while helping students attain their educational and professional goals."

The new agreements go into effect immediately.
