Based on the structure, relevance, and rigor of the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) course material, Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), as the Affiliate University in Wisconsin, offers transcripted undergraduate credit to high school students who successfully complete all requirements listed below.


The Student's Responsibility:


To receive undergraduate credit for PLTW courses from MSOE the student must meet the following eligibility requirements:

 

1.   Complete the PLTW course at PLTW School that meets the PLTW Access Recognition Level.
2.   Successfully complete a PLTW course, as demonstrated by:
a.  A grade of B or higher in classroom course work.
b.  A stanine score of 7 or higher on the end-of-course exam.

3.   If not a Wisconsin school or stanine scores and course grades have not been been submitted to MSOE, the

following must be provided on your school letterhead:

a.  List of PLTW Courses offered at your school.
b.  Student name.
c.  Course name and letter grade earned by student.
d.  Course name and stanine End of Course Exam score achieved by student.
e.  This document should be signed by your school principal/administrator.

 

When a high school student receives MSOE college credit for a PLTW course a transcript is prepared for them by the MSOE Registrar's Office. The transcript shows the MSOE equivalent course name and course number. The transcript will also show the student's letter grade based on the end-of-course exam score. Most accredited colleges and universities will recognize this transcript as proof of earned college credit and therefore eligible for transfer. Upon admission, the transfer credit will be applied to the student's college academic record at the receiving institution according that institution's policies.

Stanine 9 = A Stanine 8 = B Stanine 7 = C
