All MWA students who are approved to take PSEO classes at Ridgewater College will be expected to follow the guidelines listed below:
A. Final Ridgewater class schedules must be approved by the MWA faculty prior to the beginning of the school term.
B. Students must take a minimum of two core classes each semester at MWA.
C. Students must maintain a combined (MWA and Ridgewater) 3.0 GPA each semester to be allowed to continue taking PSEO classes.
D. PSEO school schedules cannot interfere with the student’s MWA work schedule.
E. Students must have their own transportation to and from Ridgewater. They may ride-share with another student to and from Ridgewater if both students have a class that begin and end at the same time. Parental approval in writing must also be obtained from both the student needing the ride, and the student providing the ride. For safety reasons, walking to and from Ridgewater is not permitted. Biking is permitted as long as weather conditions allow safe travel.
PLEASE NOTE: Faculty transportation is not available except in extreme emergencies.
F. One (1) credit will be applied toward MWA graduation requirements for every 3-4 hour PSEO class successfully passed.
G. Any college costs/fees are the responsibility of the student and may not be applied to their MWA student account.
H. Out-of-state students only qualify for “Special Student” status, not the PSEO program.
