Assisting You in Admission to a Bright New Future!
Western Technical College attracts a diverse student population and is committed
to an open-door policy for admission to the college for all prospective students
who meet statutory requirements. Recognizing that students are diverse in educational
preparation and that courses and programs at the college have varying levels of
difficulty, admissions services are designed to provide the best match for each
applicant's abilities, interests and aptitudes.
Apply for Admissions
In compliance with Wisconsin Act AB201, Western proudly offers eligible Veterans and Service Members the opportunity to receive priority course enrollment dates assigned by admission status.
Applicants wanting to study in a specific program area will go through assessment
using COMPASS, a series of basic skill tests, prior to being admitted to the college.
Wisconsin residents will have priority in admissions. Residents outside the state
of Wisconsin may be admitted to programs offered by Western after Wisconsin residents
inside and outside the Western district, as program space is available.
Because of program capacity, Western maintains waiting lists for students applying
to programs that are at capacity. Waiting list applicants will have priority over
all applicants for admission in subsequent semesters and will be admitted in order
based on the date of meeting the program admission requirements.
