UW-Platteville: Online signs new credit pact with UC-Riverside Extension

PRESS RELEASE

9.24.2012 – Platteville, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Platteville and its Distance Learning Center (www.GoUWP.com) have reached a new credit transfer agreement with University of California’s Riverside Extension (UCR). The partnership gives UC-Riverside Extension students the opportunity to turn certificate coursework into credits to put toward UW-Platteville’s online Master of Science in Organizational Change Leadership (MSOCL) program.

UW-Platteville’s integrated online MSOCL program focuses on the ever-increasing speed of change in today’s business world and prepares students for lead roles as change managers or consultants.

“For many students the next step on their educational journey is to leverage certificates they earn toward a graduate degree. These partnerships provide a perfect way to do that without having to put their lives on hold, said Elizabeth Lucas, coordinator of UW-Platteville’s master’s program in organizational change leadership. “This is also fantastic chance for our students to gain even deeper insight into the field through the eyes of others.”

Under the unique credit transfer agreement, coursework for UC-Riverside Extension’s Organizational Change Leadership and Development Certificate equals nine graduate credits-equivalent to three full-time courses-in the UW-Platteville’s online MSOSCL program. The same agreement applies to students at UC-Irvine Extension who hold an Organizational Change Leadership and Communication Certificate. UW-Platteville fosters and manages similar partnerships nationwide primarily through its online programs.

The university provides eight degrees entirely online: master’s degrees in organizational change leadership, project management, criminal justice, engineering, distance educational leadership and integrated supply chain management along with bachelor’s degrees in business administration and criminal justice.
