UW-Platteville signs credit agreement with University of California Extensions



Qualifying students can transfer credits from four different UC schools to UW-Platteville’s master’s program in engineering

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville and its Distance Learning Center (UW-Platteville Online) have reached credit transfer agreements with several extensions of the University of California, Oakland, Calif. The partnerships give UC students an opportunity to join one of the most highly-regarded graduate-level engineering programs in the nation.

The seven engineering agreements are with the following UC extensions:  Irvine, Santa Cruz, San Diego, and Los Angeles. The extensions form continuing education branch of UC. Visit http://bit.ly/uwppartners for specifics of the agreements.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain even deeper insight into the engineering field through the eyes of others,” said Jill Clough, coordinator of UW-Platteville’s master’s program in engineering. “We want to build a bridge between every possible educational institution so that students, wherever they may be, can earn their master’s degree and reach their professional potential.”

For example, a student who completes a graduate certificate in embedded systems engineering at one of the UC extensions can then transfer up to 12 credits, about four full-time courses, to UW-Platteville’s master of science in engineering program. UW-Platteville maintains similar degree-driven transfer agreements with institutions nationwide.

UW-Platteville provides eight degrees entirely online. Visit www.GoUWP.com, call 800.362.5460 or e-mail disted@uwplatt.edu to learn more.
