The Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College is a technical college located in Shell Lake, Wisconsin. Driven with the need for technical schools in the earlier 1970s, Wisconsin Legislature required vocational schools to be established in cities. First established in 1976, WITC was first named as Wisconsin Indianhead Vocational Technical and Adult Education District. It was only in 1987 when it was changed to its current name – the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College.
The school offers mostly two-year associate degrees and certificate programs to local students. Currently, the school has campuses in the counties of Ashland, Rice Lake, New Richmond and Superior in order to meet the needs of communities for accessible technical education as well as to meet its goals to create dynamic learning opportunities to students within the state.
There are currently more than 50 program courses offered by WITC and these include disciplines under business administration, public safety, medical technology, agriculture, criminal justice, literature, communication, arts, natural sciences, behavioral sciences and information technology. The estimate tuition fee for this academic year for resident students is $134 per credit hour while out-of-state enrollees have to pay $195 per credit hour.
WITC has a transfer information system which allows students to look for appropriate colleges and universities where they can take on a four-year bachelor’s course to complete their associate degrees. This portal makes it easier for students to locate a college or university where they can take higher education.
