Moraine Park Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay signed an articulation agreement allowing students pursuing Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) liberal arts degrees to seamlessly transfer from Moraine Park and continue their education at UW-Green Bay with confirmed junior status.
The agreement was signed by Moraine Park President Bonnie Baerwald and UW-Green Bay Chancellor Michael Alexander on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus.
“We are thrilled at UW-Green Bay to be working with our colleagues at Moraine Park Technical College to make education more accessible for the people in our region,” UW-Green Bay Chancellor Alexander said. “Our goal is to provide an education that works best for the students we serve, and this agreement will help us support more students in achieving their educational goals.”
Moraine Park began offering AA and AS liberal arts degrees this fall semester.
The agreement between Moraine Park and UW Green-Bay is Moraine Park’s third AA and AS degree partnership. Earlier this year, the College signed articulation agreements with Lakeland University and UW-Oshkosh. College leaders will continue to add partnerships with other local universities, giving district students more options and control when it comes to their education and making the future transfer process easier and more streamlined.
“By starting an education at Moraine Park, students can get their general studies completed for at a lesser cost, enjoy smaller class sizes, benefit from extensive student support, and have guaranteed transfer credits to one of our partner schools,” Dr. Fred Rice, associate vice president of academics at Moraine Park, said. “The College currently offers a wide variety of Associate of Applied Sciences (AAS) degrees, Technical Diplomas, and career pathway certificate opportunities. Adding the liberal arts degree programs will provide a more robust slate of offerings to the Moraine Park student community. Although these programs do have a wide and growing number of pre-major options, they are also excellent opportunities for those students who are unclear as to an occupational path yet still want to earn an associate degree that is transferable to a 4-year university.”
