Nicolet College, Northland College Ink Agreement

Nicolet Area Technical College

Nicolet College students looking to transfer to Northland College to earn a bachelor’s degree can now be guaranteed admission through one transfer agreement and have more options thanks to other agreements recently signed by officials from both colleges.

Located in Ashland, Northland is a liberal arts college with about 600 students.

Nicolet Transfer Coordinator Teresa Rose says after studying the offerings of both colleges, both schools felt it was a good fit....

".... a lot of time when students leave Nicolet and go to the four-year(school), they're overwhelmed. They need a smaller atmosphere, so we identified some programs...."

Officials also signed five other agreements that create a smooth pathway for Nicolet students to earn several specific bachelor’s degrees at Northland.

These pathways are for graduates earning associate degrees in Nicolet’s Business Management, Graphic Design, Early Childhood Education, and University Transfer Liberal Arts Associate of Science-Natural Resources Emphasis programs.

Rose  says the agreement allows for all liberal arts majors at Nicolet to be guaranteed junior status at Northland College.

The agreement begins in the fall of 2015.
