Edgewood's Collaborative Program with the University of Wisconsin not only allows students to take specialized courses to complement the selection offered at Edgewood, but also gives an Edgewood student access to the libraries of the University—a special advantage because of the scope and quality of their collections.
UW-Madison courses and grades appear on students' official Edgewood record and are included in the Edgewood GPA. Students’ Edgewood tuition payment covers the cost of the courses. The Collaborative Program is offered during the Fall and Spring semesters only; Winterim and Summer Session are not included.
The Collaborative Program is open to full-time degree-seeking students who have completed at least one semester at Edgewood College, are in good academic standing, and have satisfied all financial obligations to the college. Students may take one course at UW-Madison each semester, not to exceed five credits and not offered at Edgewood in the same semester. A course may not be repeated. Courses must be approved prior to enrollment and be applicable to the student’s Edgewood College degree.
The Collaborative Program application form may be obtained from the Registrar’s Office; deadlines for applying are August 1 for the Fall semester and December 15 for the Spring semester. Approval to participate in the program does not guarantee enrollment, which is subject to available space in the course, according to UW’s policies. As part of the application process, students also apply to the UW Guest and Special Student program and follow UW registration procedures. Fees are deferred to Edgewood when students register at UW.
In order to withdraw from a course, in addition to officially dropping the course at UW, the student must officially drop the course at the Office of the Registrar at Edgewood College in accordance with published procedures and deadlines.
