Stritch partners with several colleges to help students seamlessly continue their education


Several rounds of signings, handshakes and smiles defined 2016, when Stritch administrators sat alongside colleagues from Milwaukee Area Technical College, Gateway Technical College and Waukesha County Technical College to formalize new agreements that allow students to seamlessly transfer from associate programs at the colleges to bachelor’s programs at Cardinal Stritch University.

"These articulation agreements provide an academic and career pathway for students to reach a higher earning potential and helps provide a talented workforce to meet society’s growing needs," said President Dr. James P. Loftus. "They are partnerships for education, for jobs and for a better community."

Chris Head, coordinator of Prior Learning Assessment and Articulation, said the University now has more than two dozen agreements in place with colleges throughout Wisconsin, with more in the pipeline.

"These agreements include program-to-program articulations, concurrent enrollment for nursing, and partnerships that lower cost and increase access for associate degree completers from the partnering technical colleges," Head said.
