Why am I asked to go to RWU's site to finish the transaction? What happens there?
As part of our record-keeping duty for the State of Wisconsin we must have a completed application form for every student. A student submits an application with a one-time $35 fee which covers the time spent by the Dean and Registrar to review the application and other material such as prior transcripts and transfer credit requests. The payment is processed on RWU's site by our merchant gateway which accepts credit cards. The student is formally accepted, enrolls in a course, pays $400 for the course and is admitted to the learning management system.
May I transfer a course from RWU to my school?
RWU works with the Registrar's office at your school on a course by course basis before you sign up and pay for our course. We cannot guarantee that any particular course will transfer, but we can give you the names of schools in Canada and the US which have taken our credits in the past.
Is RWU reputable?
We are approved by the Education Approval Board of Wisconsin to grant the Associate's Degree in Liberal Arts. Each year we are required to attend EAB conferences and to submit recertification paperwork to the State of Wisconsin. We are pleased to provide you with references for our Dean and professors, course syllabi and any other material which will put your mind at ease.
Will RWU accept my homeschooled child?
RWU is a friend to the homeschooling family. We have many homeschooled students who do not have standard test scores or official transcripts. We make the application process straightforward for these families.
When are your sessions?
Regular sessions are in September, November, January, February, April. Summer sessions run from the end of May to July and from July to August. Please see dates under About Us or at http://www.robertwelchuniversity.org/content.php?con=58
Will RWU have a BA in the future?
RWU is currently working on a BA in Classical Studies which we hope to have approved by the State of Wisconsin in time for September 2008. Some of the individual courses for the BA are now being offered as electives.
