(Wausau, WI) – Students at Northcentral Technical College (NTC) will now be able to earn their bachelor's degree through a Virtual College partnership with Lakeland College. The partnership allows Virtual College students at NTC to transfer seamlessly into a bachelor's degree program at junior status with a 20 percent tuition discount.
"We are thrilled to provide our Virtual College students with a flexible, cost-effective option to earn their bachelor's degree," said Dr. Lori Weyers, President, NTC. "This collaboration exemplifies a shared commitment to student success between NTC and our partners at Lakeland College."
The first group of Virtual College students at NTC graduated May 2014. The new bachelor's degree partnership with Lakeland College expands flexible learning opportunities for future graduates.
"Lakeland College is pleased to welcome the first students from NTC's Virtual College this spring," said Lakeland College President Dan Eck. "Lakeland has been a pioneer in online education for two decades, and we are always looking for ways to partner with other institutions to offer students affordable access to higher education."
The new partnership allows Virtual College students to have dual enrollment status at both NTC and Lakeland College, resulting in a 20 percent tuition discount.
