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.
If you have a particular college or university in mind, reach out to an advisor before selecting courses in order to develop a transfer plan or select one the direct transfer plans developed with our four-year partners. We currently offer plans for direct transfer of AS degrees to the following colleges:
- Madison Area Technical College
- University of Wisconsin - Madison
- University of Wisconsin - Stout
- Upper Iowa University
