Publications

WTCS publications provide useful information about the System, including consistently positive outcomes for students and employer partners.

We publish a variety of reports, some annually and others periodically. These reports range from providing basic facts about our colleges, students and programs (WTCS Fact Book) to providing detailed outcomes information that demonstrates the vital role Wisconsin's technical colleges play in Wisconsin communities and the state's economy (Graduate Outcomes, Five-Year Graduate Follow-up, Employer Satisfaction, Apprenticeship Completion, Dual Credit and Credit Transfer).
