Students Save More Than $100,000 by Starting at NTC
(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Next fall, three Northcentral Technical College (NTC) students will be the first students to take advantage of an agreement between NTC and Michigan Technological University (Michigan Tech) that will not only help them earn their bachelor’s degrees in an additional two years, but will save them more than $100,000 each in the process.
Ted Wierzba is one of the students transferring to Michigan Tech in the fall to receive his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. He says with the reputation of the Engineering program at Michigan Tech he saw no reason to look anywhere else, plus he says, “The cost savings is crazy!”
Ted, Chris Lord and Loryn Becker are all transferring their Electromechanical Technology Associate Degree from NTC into the Electrical Engineering program at Michigan Tech. The transfer agreement allows them to transfer to Michigan Tech with junior standing. An additional agreement offers eligible NTC students a scholarship that equals the difference between non-resident and resident tuition, saving them $100,280 by starting at NTC.
“The best part is being able to further my education without taking any steps back from what I’ve already done at NTC,” says Chris. “I didn’t think it would be this easy.”
All three men say with the help of NTC’s Transfer & Placement Office this has been a very simple step for them.
“They walked us through the whole thing, It was so easy,” says Loryn, who hopes to specialize in robotics and someday work for NASA. “It flowed perfectly.”
The Electromechanical Technology Associate Degree program is just one of four programs with transfer agreements to Michigan Tech. NTC’s Architectural Design & Technology Associate Degree transfers into the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management at Michigan Tech while the IT – Network Specialist Associate Degree transfers into the Bachelor of Science in Computer Network & System Administration program. Finally, NTC’s Mechanical Design Engineering Technology Associate Degree transfers to the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology at Michigan Tech.
