WAICU-WTCS Course Credit Transfer Agreement (CCTA)

To assist students in pursuing their academic and career goals, the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU) has developed a course-to-course agreement with the 16 Wisconsin Technical Colleges. This will ensure a smooth transfer process for Wisconsin Technical College students who wish to continue their education at a participating Wisconsin private, nonprofit college or university.

The following Wisconsin private colleges and universities currently participate in this agreement: 


Alverno College
Cardinal Stritch University
Carroll University
Carthage College
Concordia University Wisconsin
Edgewood College
Herzing University
Lakeland University
Marian University
Marquette University
Milwaukee School of Engineering
Mount Mary University
Northland College
Viterbo University
Wisconsin Lutheran College

Private college and university participants must accept the WTCS courses for direct transfer credit, when offered, not elective credit. If the private college or university's curriculum does not offer a WTCS course listed in the agreement, that course may transfer in as an elective. Information on specific course exceptions can be found here. The courses will satisfy general education or general degree requirements when applicable. In some cases, the course will transfer to a specific major. Students are responsible for confirming that these courses transfer to their intended major.
