LA CROSSE, Wis., April 2, 2020 – Officials with UW-Madison and Western Technical College have formally announced a new transfer agreement for students who enroll in Western’s Associate of Science-Liberal Arts (ASLA) program.

Students enrolled in Western’s ASLA program can now transfer a minimum of 54 transferable credits to UW-Madison within three academic years at Western. To complete the transfer, students must submit a Declaration of Intent to Participate prior to completing 30 transferable credits at Western, meet with a transfer program advisor at least once per term, and earn a 3.0 cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) in ASLA course work. In addition, students must complete UW-Madison curriculum requirements prior to transferring from Western.
