Gateway Technical College works with students to provide them a pathway for their future through a solid education, training for a family-sustaining career, or to further their education.
Transfer agreements forged with four-year colleges provide a way to offer that path for further education. Gateway recently forged an agreement with UW-Parkside for allied business degree, as well as an agreement with Wisconsin Lutheran College for similar programs.
The transfer agreements allow a convenient and affordable pathway for students to continue their education.
Several four-year colleges accept credits for individual courses taken at Gateway. These allows students to begin their education affordably but with a solid foundation of Gateway courses and curriculum.
It also allows four-year college students home on break or taking a semester off can continue to reach their educational goals by taking approved Gateway courses which would transfer back to their home four-year university or college. It offers an affordable and convenient way to continue to earn a degree.
Transfer agreements provide Gateway graduates with three main options:
- Directly enter the workforce in a family-sustaining career
- Directly enter the workforce in a family-sustaining career, as well as enter one of many four-year colleges which have forged transfer agreements with Gateway. Many times, those graduates can enter the four-year college as a junior, saving them time and money toward a four-year degree.
Directly transfer to the four-year college. Again, many times, those graduates can enter the four-year college as a junior, saving them time and money toward a four-year degree.
