Students who graduate with an AA or AS degree are assured of an opportunity to continue studying toward a bachelor's degree on a full-time or part-time basis at Mayville State University (MSU). Upon transfer, the student will be afforded junior (third year) standing, based on the number of completed credits. 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.
Students who are verified, by official transcript or by official correspondence from one of the Wyoming community colleges, to have completed a general education core of at least 36 credits also will be granted credit for having met lower division general education requirements at MSU. 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 the receiving institution's upper division general education requirements.
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 Wyoming community colleges (or other 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 Wyoming community and continuing to do both on-line coursework with Mayville State University (MSU) and completion of general education requirements at the Wyoming CC (WCC). Consultation with the MSU advisor is recommended to assure the proper coursework is taken at the WCC.
