Transferring Nicolet Credits
Nicolet College has transfer agreements with numerous public and private four-year colleges and universities that lead to bachelor’s degrees.
These partnerships allow students to start their college educations at Nicolet, which is a two-year college, and then transfer the credits earned at Nicolet to a college or university where the Nicolet credits will count towards a bachelor’s degree.
Nicolet has an extensive set of transfer agreements with four-year University of Wisconsin colleges, including a special partnership with UW-Madison. This agreement guarantees admission to UW-Madison to Nicolet students in the University Transfer Program who earn at least 54 Nicolet credits and maintain at least a B average.
For more information about these transfer opportunities, which are also called articulation agreements, students should consult with the Welcome Center.

UW / Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) Uniform Policy Statement on Credit Transfer
Credits transfer between the Wisconsin Technical College Systems (WTCS) and UW Systems is based upon the following principles:
- Students transferring from the WTCS accredited liberal arts/ collegiate transfer program to UW baccalaurate-granting institutions may generally transfer up to 72 credits earned at non-baccalaurate institutions. UW institutions may accept additional credits toward the degree where appropriate. This does not alter policies concerning credits to be earned in residence at an institution.
- In cases where WTCS liberal arts/collegiate transfer programs awards associate of arts/associate of science degrees that specifically align with the associate degrees awarded by UW institutions, the UW baccalaureate-granting institutions shall consider students holding such a degree to have satisfied the university-wide general education/breadth requirements at the receiving institution.
- Colleges and schools may require transfer students to complete additional general education/breadth requirements beyond the university-wide total if also required of continuing students.
