​Fo​x Valley Technical College Transfer Information

FVTC Associate Degree Program: Natural Resources Technician
UWSP Baccalaureate Degree Programs: Any major within the College of Natural Resources

The Fox Valley Technical College Associate Degree in the Natural Resources Technician program prepares students for entry-level jobs in a variety of natural resources areas.  Students in the FVTC program gain technical expertise in broad areas of resource management that parallel the CNR introductory course sequence and summer camp program.  The majors in the UWSP College of Natural Resources prepare students for more employment options and enhance their ability to move into management.  Students moving from FVTC to UWSP will combine their strong technical training with additional natural resource coursework providing additional employment opportunities in local, state, federal and private sector agencies.

If a student completes the Natural Resources Technician program at FVTC, they will transfer 54 credits to UWSP, including the CNR Introductory Courses (NR 150, 151, 250 and 251) and Summer Camp (Forestry 319, 320, NR 405, Soil 359, 360, Water 380 and Wildlife 340).  If they do not complete their entire program at FVTC, their credits will be reviewed on an individual basis and may not transfer.  If the student changes into a UWSP major outside of the CNR or transfers to a different UW institution, the credits are not transferable unless a similar agreement exists.
