Most students who attend UW-BC are planning to transfer to a 4-year campus to complete a bachelor’s degree. The regional UW campuses — Eau Claire, Stout, Superior and River Falls — tend to be the most popular destinations, but students can successfully transfer to any UW, out-of-state, public or private college or university. This includes UW-Madison.
In recent years, UW-BC students have gone on to complete bachelor’s degrees in:
business, education, health sciences, biology, psychology, communication arts, sociology, art, engineering, agriculture, computer science, and many other majors.
The two-year Associate of Arts and Sciences degree is specifically designed for transfer and can be customized to support any major or program found at the four-year campuses. Completion of the degree fulfills all of the basic general education requirements at UW schools — you’re halfway to your bachelor’s degree!
Through our advising program, students receive careful assistance in selecting courses in planning for transfer. The Transfer Information System is a helpful resource for determining course equivalencies between the UW campuses. UW-BC also hosts representatives from the 4-year campuses twice a year for Transfer Day.
Students who complete two years at UW-BC are eligible for the Guaranteed Transfer Program within the UW System which takes the worry out of getting to the next step.
If you have questions about how you can begin a specific major at UW-BC or just any questions about transferring, please contact the Student Services Office at (715) 234-8024 and ask to speak with an academic advisor.
