Officials from Gateway Technical College and UW-Parkside will sign an agreement Thursday which will allow Gateway students to transfer a block of 30 general education credits to the four-year university.
The agreement will be signed at a Gateway Technical College Board of Trustees meeting at 1:30 p.m. in the Center for Bioscience & Information Technology, 3520-30th Ave., Kenosha. It is part of a board committee of the whole meeting in which transfer agreements will be highlighted.
This is the first time a block of general studies courses can be transferred to UW-Parkside without the student having completed a Gateway degree. The 30-credit General Studies Transfer Certificate offers students a less expensive way to earn their general education credits as they eye a bachelor’s degree at UW-Parkside.
Students would enter as a UW-Parkside sophomore if they completed the 30-credit general studies certificate at Gateway and met the admission requirements at UW-Parkside.
