Students completing the AA-DTA degree option from one of Washington's community or technical colleges or have completed a general education core of at least 36 credits also will be granted credit for having met all lower division general education requirements at Mayville State University (MSU), with the exception that students may be required to complete a communications course in public speaking, speech, or other approved communication course. Students may be required to complete other courses, which may fall under a general education category only if the courses are required as part of the student's major and were not completed prior to transfer or are a part of MSU’s upper division general education requirements. Some specific programs (teacher education, etc.) require additional or higher admission standards than those listed below, or may be required by federal or state licensing agencies to ensure additional criteria are met.
To be eligible under this assurance, students must:
- 1. complete an AA or AS degree,
- 2. have a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale,
- 3. apply for admission to MSU,
- 4. supply MSU with all required documentation,
- 5. meet all deadlines set by MSU,
- 6. be in good standing with the prior institution and
- 7, be subject to the criminal justice disclosure and review process of our campus.
Students transferring with a previously earned associate’s or bachelor’s degree from one of the Washington community or technical colleges (or other accredited colleges/universities) will be exempt from MSU’s institutional graduation requirements.
All general education and other courses will be assessed through our transfer evaluation process to determine applicable transfer credit towards the specified MSU major.
Students may complete a baccalaureate (four-year) degree while remaining in your Washington community and continuing to do both on-line coursework with Mayville State University (MSU) and completion of general education requirements at the Washington Community and/or Technical College (WCTC). Consultation with the MSU advisor is recommended to assure the proper coursework is taken at the WCTC.
