(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) and Madison College have signed a new Liberal Arts Transfer program agreement that will give students the opportunity to begin their bachelor’s degree at NTC.

With this new partnership, NTC students will have access to Madison College’s Liberal Arts Transfer associate degrees (AA and AS) which provide transfer opportunities to higher education institutions throughout the country and Wisconsin – including guaranteed transfer agreements with UW-Madison and other UW System schools.

“We couldn’t be more proud to partner with Madison College to provide an affordable and accessible liberal arts transfer option to NTC students who want to start with us on their path to a four-year degree,” said Dr. Lori Weyers, president of NTC.

The first 100 students who apply to the program will receive a $200 scholarship from the NTC Foundation.

“This collaboration is a true partnership between Madison College and NTC, born of our shared commitment to providing access to higher education to Wisconsin students,” said Dr. Turina Bakken, provost of Madison College. “With this program, NTC students will be able to complete the Liberal Arts Transfer program without leaving home and will be academically prepared to succeed at the university of their choice.”
