Western Technical College and Viterbo University make co-admission agreement official

8 things you need to know today... western technical college and viterbo university officially signed a co-admission agreement that will begin next fall.

It allows students to be enrolled to both western and viterbo at once.

News 8's tyler job is here to tell us what this change means for students at both colleges.... mike ... both colleges already have 48 program agreements that will allow students from western to transfer over their credits to the same major at viterbo if they wish.

Overall ... this should make it easier for students going forward.

"i already go to western, so like why wouldn't i go to viterbo?"

Jarrell tarr is a sophomore at western technical college thinking about transferring to viterbo.

"it'll be more like an easier movement, and i'm already used to the environment around here.

So, that'd be pretty convenient for me."

He plans to major in human services.

"more to do out there.

More opportunities for human services and stuff like that.

And i like helping people out, too."

Now, things just got easier for students like tarr.

"western is our top transfer partner.

So we've been waiting to see how can we build degrees together?

How can we work in partnership to make sure more students graduate?"

Officials from western and viterbo signed a co-admission agreement that gives an easier transition for students going from western to viterbo.

"it's kinda like truth in advertising or promotion.

You say this is what you get and this is what you're promised for your two to five-year journey."

The agreement also allows students to be enrolled at western and viterbo at once.

"that relationship (between western and viterbo) has always been good.

It's now better because they get all of their credits counted towards their baccalaureate degree, with no loss.

I think it's a win-win-win."

Some credits that can be transferred over include business ... engineering ... and education majors ... and even tarr's very own human services.

"having more students from western would be wonderful to have on our campus as well."

Whether tarr decides to transfer or not, he just wants to make his family proud of him.

"i'm the first child to go to college out of my family.

So, i'm pretty much doing it for my family, really."

Temple also told me that western and viterbo had been talking about this agreement for about a year ... before making it official today.

And how many students are enrolled at each school?

So both colleges combine for more than 67- hundred undergraduate and graduate students.

Western has more than 41- hundred ... while viterbo has just over
