(WAUSAU, Wis.) – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) is pleased to announce a scholarship deadline extension for students who begin general education classes this fall. Students who start their four-year degree at NTC have the opportunity to receive their first class free through a scholarship. Due to the generosity of the NTC Foundation, the Liberal Arts Transfer scholarship is available to the first 30 students who apply, are accepted to the program and register for classes by August 14, 2021.

Students can receive their first class free (up to $500 value)

“This opportunity will allow students who may not have thought about pursuing their bachelor’s degree because of cost, relocating, or other reasons to have the option to start their four-year degree at NTC,” said Darren Ackley, Vice President of Learning at NTC.

The Liberal Arts Transfer program is an agreement between NTC and Madison College. Students can choose to either earn their associate degree after two years or transfer to a four-year university to earn a bachelor’s degree. Due to the partnership with Madison College, this program also has a guaranteed transfer path to UW-Madison.

Students can choose from four pre-majors including:

  1. Arts and Humanities
  2. Economics and Pre-Business
  3. Pre-Professional Health
  4. Science, Math and Technology
