01/29/2020- A new initiative by UW-Green Bay is easing some of the strain for technical college students looking to transfer into the school. The university is now waiving the $50 application fee for students coming to them from the Wisconsin Technical College System. Officials with UWGB say the move to eliminate some enrollment barriers is part of a larger effort to attract technical college students who can complete their bachelor’s degrees with UW-Green Bay and then ideally remain in the region to fill the jobs available here. The new application fee policy applies not only to current technical college students, but also for members of the workforce who previously earned an associate degree at a Wisconsin Technical College System school, including NWTC.
