The curriculum includes 30 credits of university general education courses and 30 credits of core courses in GISci. Applicants who bring in fewer than 60 college credits from a previous degree plan will need to take additional courses.
Credit will be awarded for college-level course work completed at accredited institutions. While general education credits are generally accepted from two-year colleges, this new program makes it possible for students to receive university credit for technical and work specific courses as well. For more information on how your college credits will transfer to UW-River Falls, visit the Transfer Credit Policy web page or contact the Admissions transfer officer.
