The Shocker Pathway is a partnership between WSU Tech and Wichita State University to provide a convenient and flexible way to earn an Associate of Arts (AA) from WSU. Shocker Pathway students begin their general education coursework at WSU Tech by earning up to 45 credit hours, then transitioning to WSU to earn an additional 15 hours for completion of the AA degree.

Transition from WSU Tech to WSU

Starting fall 2018, students can take advantage of the new affiliation between Wichita State University and WSU Tech – formerly known as Wichita Area Technical College.

While the two remain separate degree-granting institutions, the formalized affiliation now allows for more collaborative possibilities, as well as increased availability and quality of opportunities for students, while directly meeting the core workforce needs of the state.
