Gateway, UW-P open degree path for some 'green' careers

Gateway Technical College and UW-Parkside are making it easier for some Gateway students to transfer their credits from Gateway into four-year UW-P degree programs.

Officials from the two colleges will sign an agreement Thursday at CATI giving students in two "green" career areas at Gateway expanded educational opportunities. This will allow associate degree graduates in two Gateway programs to transfer their credits to UW-Parkside toward a bachelor of science degree in Geosciences-Soil and Water Sciences.

Gateway students graduating in Freshwater Resources have the opportunity to engage in a 2-plus-2 agreement with UW-Parkside, where 72 approved Gateway credits transfer to the four-year college. Geoexchange graduates will have the opportunity to engage in a 1-plus-3 agreement, where 30 approved Gateway credits will transfer. Approved prior academic coursework will be fully recognized and transferable to UW-Parkside toward the completion of those degrees.
