- ABOUT LAKELAND
Lakeland College, in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, offers students the opportunity to earn a dual degree — a baccalaureate degree in engineering sciences from Lakeland and a baccalaureate degree in one of twelve areas of engineering from the University. This program requires approximately two years of study at Lakeland, followed by three years at the University.
Lakeland students who express interest in the dual degree program will be selected for entrance into the University of Wisconsin-Madison portion of the program based on a minimum “B” (3.00) average in all Lakeland coursework; a minimum “B” (3.00) average in the chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and physics coursework required by the program; and the positive recommendation of the Lakeland physical science and mathematics faculty. Qualified Lakeland applicants are assured admission to the College of Engineering at Madison.
In the first two years of college coursework taken through Lakeland, students must complete a minimum of 62 semester hours. Of these courses, a minimum number must be successfully completed in each of the following areas: four in mathematics (calculus through differential equations), two in physics (calculus-based courses), three in chemistry (through quantitative analysis), one in computer science, GEN 130 CORE I: Knowing the Self, and one each from each of the following areas: history, humanities or religion, and social sciences. Students in this program must also complete all Lakeland College Basic Skills and College writing requirements. Credit, but not grades, for all the aforementioned courses, passed with a grade of "C" or better, will be transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Madison transcript as credit for equivalent Madison courses, even though they may not be required by the Madison engineering curriculum selected by the student.
During the years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, students will complete the requirements specified in the University of Wisconsin-Madison, College of Engineering bulletin at the time of admission to their engineering degree programs. Coursework taken at the University of Wisconsin- Madison will also be transferred to Lakeland College to complete the requirements for the Lakeland College baccalaureate degree in engineering sciences.
Students must apply to the appropriate financial aid office (Lakeland for the first years and Madison at the time of transfer) when seeking financial assistance. The Lakeland financial aid office will assist students through the transition by forwarding full financial transcripts and other relevant documents to Madison.
When transferring to the University of Wisconsin-Madison from Lakeland College, the student will be expected to submit applications for admission, housing, and financial aid on standard forms in accord with the deadlines established in the then current University of Wisconsin- Madison documents.
Graduates of this program will be eligible to participate in commencement ceremonies at both Lakeland College and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
