University Transfer

The Smartest Start To Your Four-Year Degree

Prepare for a successful career with the general knowledge and skills of an associate's degree. Program courses equal those found in the first two years of four-year colleges and universities, fulfill many bachelor’s degree general education requirements, and can apply to a specific major’s degree requirements. Transfer individual courses or an entire degree. By completing an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree, you'll have the benefit of a degree-to-degree transfer where universities grant junior status and waive general degree requirements, regardless of specific liberal arts courses taken at Nicolet.

University Transfer Makes Sense

“I started my college education at a private university, but after my first year the cost was just too much. I returned home to attend Nicolet College as a transfer student, and I can honestly say the experience was even better than I expected."

Ashley, Nicolet Graduate

University Transfer Options Close to Home

The outbreak of COVID-19 probably has you questioning many decisions and plans for the future, including if your college-bound child should attend a distant campus in the fall. This is not an easy decision and there are many factors to consider.

There is no rush to decide, but you should know your child has local options to continue their education.

Transfer to UW-Madison to earn a Big Ten degree at a fraction of the cost
