NWTC to accept college credit for military service

Thursday August 6, 2015
Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) is continuing its commitment to those who serve our country, with a new policy, which could allow current and former members of the military to receive college credit for their service.
Starting this fall, service members and veterans may receive up to 10 credits of general education coursework depending on their chosen academic program and years of military service. Approved credits will be designated as advanced standing on the student’s official transcript and will not carry a grade towards the student’s GPA.
“The skills and experience learned during a service member’s time in the military are valuable tools in preparing them for a successful career and life after the military,” said Jeremy Galica, NWTC Veterans Services Advisor. 
He added with this policy, NWTC shows our continued dedication to the men and woman in uniform. 
The courses which students may receive credit include:
  • College 101
  • Contemporary American Society
  • Oral/Interpersonal Communication
  • Intro to Ethics: Theory and Application
Over 400 veterans currently attend NWTC, with the top three areas of study in trades, health sciences and public safety.
