The University of Wisconsin System Transfer Information System is an amazing tool. With the TIS’s Transfer Wizard, you are able to look up a class at any UW System school, including the Wisconsin Technical Colleges, to see if it will transfer to any other UW System school, in addition to the course name and number. For example, if you are looking up all the math courses offered at Blackhawk Technical College that transfer to UW-Whitewater, you will find that Math 118 and Math 195 both transfer to UW-Whitewater as Math 141, a required course for the ECE4U program.
The UW-Whitewater Early Childhood Education program, including ECE4U, is dual licensing. It is the only program like this in the state of Wisconsin. You will simultaneously earn the Early Childhood Regular Education License #1777 and the Early Childhood Special Education License #1809. Both cover the age group of birth to age 8 (third grade).
Yes, you can graduate without your license and return later. Please be aware, however, that if the UW-Whitewater program changes or if the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction licensing rules/requirements change, you will be responsible for meeting the new requirements and standards.
Yes, the program can be completed at your own pace. Your program advisor will help you design a plan that meets your unique needs and situation.
WebEx is a valuable tool for online students. It allows you to meet with someone through an internet connection with audio and visual capacities, and allows you to share a computer desktop. Please refer to the university’s WebEx webpage for more information. http://www.uww.edu/icit/services/webex
