A formal partnership with Upper Iowa University (UIU) was established in the fall of 2003. Given that, any student who graduates from any Milwaukee Area Technical College Associate program may have up to 78 lower division college semester credits transferred towards any of the Bachelor-level degree programs offered at UIU. Up to 30 semester credits may be transferred to Upper Iowa University for students completing an MATC one-year occupational diploma program.
A current articulation agreement is in place by which the transfer of credits for specific courses is determined. An equivalency guide showing that current articulation can be viewed at: http://www.uiu.edu/admissions/transfer/articulation/pdfs/MilwaukeeMATCAE2009-10Articulation.pdf.
