The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree must have been earned after May 2006 for Western Technical College (WTC) graduates or after May 2013 for Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) graduates. Students may not begin these specifically-articulated transfer programs or be considered a student in these programs until the AAS degree has been completed and documented on the technical college transcript. A student who did not complete the AAS degree could instead complete the requirements of the general major, and any completed courses of the AAS would count toward the major, but in order to come into this articulated transfer agreement program, the AAS must be completed prior to transfer to Viterbo. The student cannot be dually enrolled.
