UWM and Milwaukee Area Technical College offer pathways to make transfer easier for students. These pathways show how associate degree courses apply to a related bachelor’s degree. 

We have done our best to make sure as many associate courses as possible count toward a bachelor’s degree. The pathways:

  • Identify course-to-course equivalencies
  • Outline exceptions granted by relevant articulation agreements
  • Recommend appropriate substitutions so more courses transfer

Students who follow the pathways will transfer in the most efficient way.
