Madison College, UW-Madison announce transfer agreement

The agreement helps students looking to become teachers

MADISON, Wis. — Students looking to become teachers were given a boost Tuesday, after Madison College and UW-Madison announced a transfer agreement.

Madison College students preparing to become elementary or special education teachers will now be able to enter those programs at UW.

Students who transfer to UW will also be eligible for financial support through the Wisconsin Teacher Pledge.

“It provides a clear path to a meaningful profession for those who historically do not see college as an option,” Madison College Provost Dr. Turina Bakken said.

Madison College students must earn a 3.0 cumulative GPA or better and meet the requirements for admission to UW-Madison to qualify for the program.
