Most people who graduate from Gateway Technical College will now have the ability to parlay those credits into a bachelor’s degree at Carthage College.

Officials with Gateway Technical College and Carthage signed a partnership agreement Monday to allow Gateway students to transfer up to 68 credits to Carthage College. The credits can be applied to a Carthage degree and many students will be able to start as a junior.

“This new agreement exemplifies the commitment Gateway Technical College and Carthage College have made to provide higher education pathways that benefit students and employers throughout Southeastern Wisconsin,” said Gateway Technical College President and CEO Bryan Albrecht. “Aligning our admission requirements benefits adult students and accelerates their access to both of our colleges.”

Albrecht said the agreement highlights the partnership between Gateway and Carthage.




“Aligning our admission requirements benefits adult students and accelerates their access to both of our colleges,” he said.

Carthage has more than 40 undergraduate degree programs that feature a traditional semester and four programs that have an evening accelerated format.


“We’re excited to be part of something that provides students with additional opportunities to continue their education and achieve their long-term educational goals,” said William J. Miller, associate provost for continuing studies at Carthage.

For more information, students should contact (262) 619-6214 at Gateway or Carthage’s Office of Continuing Studies at (262) 551-6300.
