Lakeland, Cardinal Stritch Sign Teach-Out Agreement

Lakeland University and Cardinal Stritch University have signed a teach-out agreement to support Cardinal Stritch students searching for a new institution to complete their degree.

Cardinal Stritch, located in Fox Point, Wis., recently announced it will close following the current school year.

The agreement includes several benefits for Stritch students:

  • Automatic admission to Lakeland of current Stritch students in good academic standing.
  • Guaranteed acceptance of 100% successfully completed credits at Stritch.
  • Stritch students will be able to complete their degree in the same amount of time and will pay the same or less tuition in most instances to attend Lakeland.
  • Assistance through every step of the admission process and ongoing academic support with a Lakeland advisor.

The teach-out agreement is pending approval by the Higher Learning Commission, although Stritch students can begin the transfer process immediately.

Stritch students have several pathways to finish their degree at Lakeland:

  • Taking courses one night a week at Lakeland’s Milwaukee Center or one of its other six centers across the state.
  • Taking courses through Lakeland’s online offerings.
  • Attending Lakeland’s residential campus in Sheboygan County.

Additionally, Lakeland’s Cooperative Education program provides ways for students to earn academic credit for work. Lakeland also offers credit for prior learning options, which can award students academic credit for previous work, reducing the time to degree completion.

Lakeland is hosting information sessions to provide Stritch students with an opportunity to learn more about Lakeland, and LU admissions counselors will be available to answer any questions.

Upcoming Sessions:

  • April 27: 3 - 6 p.m.
    • In-Person at Cardinal Stritch. Exact location TBA.

More dates will be announced. Links to the Zoom sessions are available at
