Special Requirements:


All students, including transfer students, graduating from WSC must complete at least one Educated Perspective Seminar (EPS 300).

 

Students must complete 60 hours, including at least 30 hours of General Education courses, before registering for EPS 300.

 

An EPS 300 course cannot count towards a student’s major or endorsement.

Students may petition the Registrar to retake an EPS 300 course of any topic to replace a grade of C– or below. The grade earned in repetition will stand.

 

Students can apply no more than two General Education courses toward a non-teaching major.

 

Several majors and/or endorsements require course work of higher level or designated course number to meet specific General Education requirements. Refer to specific program descriptions in the catalog for identification of these courses.

 

 

NOTES:

 

Transfer students who have completed the associate degree program (AA, AS, or pre-approved AAS degree) at an accredited institution are generally admitted with junior standing. A maximum of 66 semester hours of academic credit may be accepted from all previously attended accredited community colleges. An examination may be required before credit is accepted for a course defined by WSC as upper level if it has been taken in a community college.

 

The only General Education requirement for transfer students with an AA or AS degree from an accredited Nebraska community college is one completed Educated Perspective Seminar course unless specific requirements are a part of the intended major/degree program. All other transfer students must meet all WSC General Education requirements; General Education transfer courses will be considered on a course by course basis.

 

Students who have completed an unarticulated associate of applied science degree may (if they so desire) enter under the regulations governing the Technology or Trade and Industrial Education programs. These are described in the catalog in the section on Industrial Technology.

 

For more information, students may consult the current catalog.
