In order to supplement the instructional resources of Edgewood College and provide expanded opportunities to students, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Edgewood College have an agreement by which Edgewood students may take courses at UW-Madison and have these courses and grades appear on their official Edgewood record and 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 Edgewood Central; deadlines for applying are July 1 for the Fall semester and December 1 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.
