Gateway Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Parkside this week entered into seven new partnerships to simplify business and graphic design students’ transitions from Gateway to Parkside.

Students graduating from Gateway with associate degrees in accounting, business management, marketing and supervisory management will be allowed to transfer into bachelor’s degree accounting, management information systems and business management programs in Parkside’s College of Business, Economics and Computing.

Students graduating with a Gateway associate degree in graphic communications will be allowed to transfer into the bachelor’s degree graphic design program in Parkside’s College of Arts and Humanities, according to a Gateway press release.

Gateway students transferring to Parkside in those areas will see 54 to 62 of their credits accepted at Parkside, depending on the degree. Students will be accepted into the university with junior standing, the release said.

The new partnerships allow “students who want to begin their education at Gateway, and continue at UW-Parkside, the peace of mind to know that their credits will be accepted at the four-year university — and the time and money invested will be recognized,” the release said.

Gateway students wishing to participate in the transfer agreements should contact their program adviser, the release said.

The new partnerships mean Gateway and Parkside have 11 such partnerships, according to a Parkside press release. The four pre-existing partnerships involve general studies, physical therapy and geosciences, according to Gateway.

The two higher learning institutions celebrated the partnerships at a signing ceremony Tuesday at Parkside.
