FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI —
Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay have signed transfer agreements effective September 1, 2019 that allow students earning associate degrees in business management or accounting at LTC to transfer their credits to UW-Green Bay when they major in those respective fields.
“With one in three LTC graduates furthering their education after graduating, we welcome students to choose us as an affordable and convenient start to their business management or accounting programs,” said LTC Vice President of Instruction James Lemerond. “We appreciate having these agreements in place, showing tremendously close alignment between these programs at LTC and UW-Green Bay, as well as high-quality instruction.”
The business management agreement requires students who earn an associate degree in business management at LTC to enroll in the bachelor’s degree business administration major, with an emphasis in one of eight areas: business analysis, entrepreneurship, finance, general business, human resource management, management, marketing, and supply chain management.
The accounting agreement requires students who earn an associate degree in accounting at LTC to enroll in the bachelor’s degree accounting major with a business administration minor. Students will also have the option to earn enough credits to become eligible to sit for the certified public accountant (CPA) license exam.
Students who choose to earn their business management or accounting degree at LTC and then transfer to UW-Green Bay can expect to save up to $7,000 in tuition and fees alone. They will also minimize the time it takes to earn their bachelor’s degree by avoiding retaking courses that would not transfer.
LTC students will be required to meet standard UW-Green Bay admission and graduation requirements.
