Nicolet College transfer students to UW-Madison will now have a way to finish their Nicolet Associate Degree.
Earlier this month, officials from both campuses signed a reverse credit transfer agreement that gives students the opportunity to receive a Nicolet associate of arts or science degree once they complete required courses at UW-Madison.
Nicolet president Elizabeth Burmaster says they found many students were transferring prior to the completion of required courses for an associate degree from Nicolet.
She explained that the agreement gives the students the opportunity to transfer UW-Madison credits back to Nicolet.
The agreement applies to students who transfer at least16 Nicolet credits to UW-Madison and have completed at least 15 credits at UW-Madison. The agreement applies to all new students as well as to those already attending UW-Madison.
Speaking of Nicolet, they will be hosting their “Returning to Learning” event this evening. The open house is designed for adults considering returning to college. Stop ins are welcome between 5-7. They’ll have information on balancing school work and family, admissions, and specific course goals.
