If you’re considering a four-year college or university, consider this: taking credits at Western could save you 40 percent over the cost of a four-year university in Wisconsin, and it's one-sixth the cost of the average private college. You could save thousands of dollars, take on much less debt, and graduate with the same bachelor’s degree!

The Associate of Science (AS) degree puts you on the path to a four-year degree. It's designed to support transfer into the natural, physical, material, and medical sciences.
