Transferring from LWTech

Start at LWTech

Transferring from an Associate’s to a Bachelor’s is the single most issue for the majority of students seeking 4-year degrees. At Lake Washington Institute of Technology, we pride ourselves on the many pathway options for students seeking a Bachelor’s from in-state universities and colleges, including LWTech. All degrees, whether DTA/MRP or AAS-T or even the AAS, could be accepted at the following institutions in an effort to complete a Bachelor’s Degree. Click on your program to see a list of schools that would work with you in accepting your particular degree and credits.  

A bachelor's degree can improve your chances in the job market and help you make more money. Employers want graduates with:

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Critical thinking skills
  • Complex problem-solving skills
  • Applied knowledge in real-world settings
  • A broad (rather than narrow) education
